Cubby Shelf Bookcase

This weekend it rained and rained and rained. And then it rained some more. Luckily, we had already purchased some lumber from Lowe's a few weeks ago and had a shop project that was just waiting around for a rainy day.

My mom wants to replace the changing table in her playroom with a shelf that can hold toys, so we told her we could whip something up! I found the plans for the perfect shelf online and we altered them to fit the canvas bins she had already purchased. The plans were super easy to follow; we made all of our cuts first and then just had to assemble.

Here she is midway.

The plan called for a back out of MDF, but since the shelf was already getting pretty heavy, we decided to use some beaded board we already had.

And here is how she looks with her lime green baskets.

Now I just have to find time to paint 'er up real purty. Anyone else out there need a cubby shelf bookcase?

I can't forget to mention that we had a couple of visitors stop by and check on our work.

The pups were pretty tired of the rain too so they joined us in the shop.

And occasionally ol' Henry would wander out onto the porch to watch the rain from his chair.

He has such a hard life...
