Project #2: Toy Shelf for Colton's toys. I followed these plans (builds you 2 shelves for $60 in lumber).
STEP 1: Buy lumber from Home Depot
STEP 2: Get lumber cut at Home Depot
STEP 3: Build bookshelf with nail gun, wood glue
STEP 4: Fill nail holes and sand down
STEP 5: Prime and paint bookshelf (I used Behr paint and primer in one)
STEP 5: Paint 2-3 polycrylic coats for protection
...and you're done!
So, for $24 in lumber, plus $27 in finishing supplies...I have a $51 bookshelf (warning...I spent as much on the baskets as I did on the shelf :) But aren't they beautiful? haha )
Hope you like it! Once Colton gets more toys and needs a toy room, I'll have the other shelf and put 2 against a wall. I already bought the other matching baskets.
