After Brad and I walked through our house for the first time, I noticed that the living room was missing something. That something was a bookcase. I have had the image in my head for the longest time of decorating a bookcase with some antique books and lots of pictures of Brad and I’s loved ones. I, once again, found the one I like on ana-white.com. Seriously, if you are in need of some DIY furniture plans, this is the place to go. Our sofa table, farmhouse dining room table, end tables, and coffee table (coming soon!) all came from her site.
4 – 2×3 @ 6 feet long (can rip 2x6s in half)
3 – 2×2 @ 8 feet long
3 – 1×2 @ 8 feet long
1 – 1×12 @ 10 feet long
1 – 1×12 @ 6 feet long
full sheet of 1/4″ plywood or paneling for back (would be super cute to use planked boards for the back too!)
1-1/4″ and 2-1/2″ pocket hole screws
3/4 inch finish nails
1-1/4″ Pocket Hole Screws
2-1/2″ Pocket Hole Screws
TIP: If you can’t find 2x3s and don’t want to rip 2x6s down to 2 1/2″ widths (2×3 should measure 1 1/2″ x 2 1/2″) you can substitute 2x4s – but you will need to take an inch off all shelf trim boards (excluding top shelf trim boards and end shelf trim boards)
TIP: 1x12s can vary in width, most likely 11 1/4″ wide. For the end shelf trim pieces, measure and cut to fit for the best fit.
