How to make built in bookcases with cabinets,rust oleum wood stain willow,storage sheds plans 8x8 - For Begninners
My husband, Matt, has multiple sclerosis and is in a wheelchair, so he’s unable to help me with any home improvement projects. Kristi, how exciting to look on your blog this morning and find that you’ve finished your bookcase wall! One reason for going with the individual box method is that I’ll be building the bookcases out of MDF (it’s cheaper than cabinet-grade plywood, and smoother for painting), and MDF is heavy!!
The second option would be to purchase that really thin plywood that they sell in the stock cabinet section of Home Depot that is made to cover the particle board sides of stock cabinets. Kristi, I don’t know the width or height of the cabinets you want, but I found stock bookcases at Walmart and Big Lots for about $15.
Fixed shelves are simpler but you must make sure the shelves are the right height for your books or display items. Adjustable shelves can be made with shelf pegs and a series of holes drilled in the sides or with metal shelf standards.
We built from scratch, but I love the idea of taking builder grade cabinets and customizing them to your needs.
Sounds like what you’re planning is very close to what we built in our tiny 525 sq ft beach condo. I have loved seeing your condo transformed into what it is today, and I can’t wait to see what you do with your next home.
