Front Facing Bookshelf
I wanted to make Bella some front facing bookshelves, so I used Anna White's plans for this wall mounted bookshelf. (here is the link to the plans)
I used the base woodshop and built the small 24" shelf. It was a nice simple set of plans, and I painted it white for a nice clean look. The guys at the woodshop suggested 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint. I used a foam cabinet roller to apply the paint, which was pretty nice because it could get into all the corners. It left a somewhat rough feeling surface to the shelf though, so I ended up using a fine grit sandpaper to smooth the whole thing out after I painted it.
I have another bookshelf project for you in a few days so stay tuned!
