Building a Colorful Bookshelf

Build A Colorful Bookshelf For Your Kids

Building a Colorful Bookshelf

What you’ll need:

  • A jigsaw or similar saw
  • Sandpaper/electric sander
  • Wood screws
  • Power drill or screwdriver
  • Lumber
  • Wood glue
  • Paint
  • Measuring tape
  • Pencil and paper

The Plan:

  1. Use your saw to cut your lumber pieces to the length that you need.
  2. Use a vice or clamps to hold the pieces together and use wood glue to join the corners of the lumber together. When they are dry, drill wood screws into each corner for reinforcement.
  3. Sand down all of your edges.
  4. Paint your boxes. We used high-quality spray paint, but any thick, interior household paint or craft paint for wood will work just find.
  5. Stack boxes into an alcove and enjoy!

Isn’t the look adorable, colorful and unique? I can’t wait to try it myself!
