So.. A month or two ago, my husband and I decided to build a bookshelf. We drew up a plan, measured the bookshelf I was using then, planned out the spacings based on the height of my books.
We decided on three different heights. 1) 21 cm for paperbacks 2) 27 cm for hardbacks and 3) 31 cm for picture books/ comics and other books that don’t fit on the other shelves.
Then my husband did some research to figure out how he would actually make the thing.
We went to buy the wood and had it cut to size (more or less) in the shop. The rest we made at his parent’s house.
First we did the sides, made the grooves where the planks would fit into.
Three.. four.. almost there!!And tadaaaaaaa. Now I have too much room. Just kidding.. I am so looking forward to finding new books, new stories, new characters to fall in love with and put all of them on my shelf.
I have to say, I can’t help but smile every time I walk up the stairs. I mean, isn’t it beautiful?
Any recommendations for books to help me fill up the space?
