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!
