Our place doesn't have many places to put all our stuff so I decided to have my Dad teach me the basics of wood-working and start by making a shelf, to place our TV on and put our DVD player and VCR in, and a bookcase. I've got to say, I'm pretty proud of how it turned out! Now we finally have a place for our books and our DVD player and VCR don't have to look so white trash sitting on the floor! Plus, the nook that we have doesn't fit many of the bookcases that you could buy at the store. It has really random dimensions so John and I had been thinking that maybe it'd be better if we made one. Oh, and just imagine the bookcase actually pushed back into the nook. It doesn't really stick out like that!! And just to think that it all started out as sheets of wood!
