I've been dreaming of having beautiful bookcases for YEARS! I found some styles that I really liked but all of them were about $2000. YIKES! As much as I love books I wasn't ready to drop that kind of money on the bookcases. Anyway, after building Brenan's bed and the girl's bunk beds (holy cow! I never posted pictures of those! I will.) we figured we were pros at building and decided to build our own! Haha! We also thought that bookcases would be super easy. It ended up being a more time consuming project than we had originally planned but I LOVE the way they turned out and am SO happy with them. Nathan designed our plans using the pictures of some of the ones we liked as a jumping off point. I love ours even more than the $2000 ones. Thank you Nathan!!! Aren't they pretty?!
