My sister-in-law commissioned me to build a bookshelf for my niece’s nursery. My instructions were “I want a pine bookshelf, that’s 7’x3’1’, painted white and nothing fancy.” This is my first bookshelf and my first attempt with molding…(which made me want to give up wood work all together) I was happy with the final result. Thanks for looking.

p.s. some of the shelves, in these pictures, aren’t painted yet. Just a coat of primer….that why they look alittle yellow.

I especially like the moulding….home made or store bought ? The whole case is nice : )
