and you know what? They were!
Just to see what it would look like,
I placed in some empty picture frames.
I can’t wait to finish decorating this with actual pictures and pretties!
I am going to share with you the materials, process and tricks I used to build this unit.
I also screwed into the upper support board directly into studs for added stability.
(You might notice that I sneaked in some painting here too.
I thought it would be easier to paint the shelves before I installed them.)
I wanted to connect the shelves so I created this ‘box’ to give them a unified look.
For the sides I used leftover 3/4″ birch plywood and the top and bottom was made with 1/2″ birch plywood. To complete the look I added molding on top and around the edges.
I have already added some door hardware and plan to do a few more
finishing touches before I am totally done with this project.
But that hasn’t stopped me from already filling these bad boys up with toys…
Can’t wait to show you the whole big boy room reveal.
I still have a few more projects to complete like
a plank wall, some roman shades, a few light fixtures and some shark art!
Yikes! When I list it all out like that it seems overwhelming! 🙂
