DIY Bookcases 2: It Takes a Village
There are two downfalls to doing a home project on yourself. The first is making sure that the materials fit into your car. The second is carrying said supplies to your home. When I first went to IKEA I stacked 6 74" shelves onto a wobbly trolley. In a come...

DIY Built-in Bookcases
I like my little cottage place but it is little. It was built in 1940 and the closets are exactly big enough for a 1940s wardrobe: your Church dress and your work dress. There are many pluses to my place but square footage is not among them and making the b...
