This post shows our two between-the-studs transformations in our master bath; this post we built small shelves between the studs in a half-wall to hold all my kitchen baking goods; while this post only gave a sneak peak into the bookshelves we made in our tiny office. (All seen below)
Those bookshelves are what we're going to focus on today. In the post about the computer desk, I mentioned that we had a beautiful window in our stairwell that wasn't being utilized because of the west facing wall in this small "office". However, we couldn't just knock out the wall completely because we didn't want children falling into the basement...because that would be bad. ;-) So, using the same concept as our half-wall baking good shelves, we set to building.
Then I caulked like crazy!
Primed and painted.
And enjoyed our new bookshelves! Ah, the natural light; it's so wonderful!!
