How to build a Bookcase with Toy Storage
This project has been sponsored by buildsomething.com so make sure you head on over there for the full project plans. Build Something is another excellent source for DIY furniture plans and this is my first of many projects plans on their site.
I started out by drawing out the sides and middle panel using the diagram in the plans.
Next, I cut them out with a circular saw and jigsaw.
Then, I began assembly with one side, back, front and bottom using pocket hole screws.
Then I used the shelf to space the middle panel and joined that with pocket hole screws.
Now the support gets installed.
Followed by the remaining back and side.
And finally the top is installed with pocket hole screws as well.
Now, the shelf gets assembled using pocket hole screws.
Once it’s located and level is achieved then the shelf is installed.
Finally add the baseboard and decorative trim using 1-1/4″ brad nails.
I finished the bookcase with some Seaside paint I had left over from from my Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations Kit.
I hope you enjoyed this project and be sure to head over to buildsomething.com for the full plans.
