My Woodworker


Mir over at Want Not (I love this blog!) is talking about bookcases today. My advice about the bookshelves? Marry a woodworker. My hubby built an awesome floor to ceiling built-in bookcase in my boys’ bedroom behind their bedroom door. The top shelf goes above the closet and spans the entire wall. It is built entirely out of walnut, and is L-bracketed to the wall. Basically indestructible.

  1. AMEN to that! I married a woodworker (who is a full time soldier, to boot). He says "If women don't find ya handsome, at least let 'em find ya handy!" He's BOTH!
    That is a cool bookcase.

  2. OOh that looks good!

  3. That's the one characteristic my husband doesn't have but I wish he did. He can't build a darn thing.

    The shelves look very nice!

  4. Can you send him to my house now? I need lots of bookshelves. Yours look BEAUTIFUL.

  5. Those are FABULOUS! What a great space for storage!!

  6. I LOVE IT! Can he teach my husband??!! : ) My husband has always wanted to be mentored by a woodworker : ), but we've never known one…..but it's a GREAT skill to have, and I LOVE what ya'll did for your boys room – so practical and handy!!!

  7. My husband's pretty handy and if he doesn't know how to do it, he's willing to learn. I love those bookshelves, and I think if I showed my hubby he would be able to make um. Thanks for sharing!
