In case my not so subtle tweets over the weekend weren't as obvious as I thought, I spent the past two days making my very own bookshelf! I made it by myself (with some instructional help from dad who actually knows how to use things like a drill). And since I am so excited about it, I thought I'd dedicate an entire post to it, because I like it and I'm so proud of myself for doing this!
Me using the drill and clamp
This is when we had all the shelves drilled into one side and were about to start drilling holes for the other side.
Clamping my template in place so I could drill the holes without it causing movement
Just a random picture of all the shelves in.
The paint has finally finished drying.
THE END PRODUCT
So, some information on the bookshelf: it has six shelves, weighs a lot more than I thought possible and is 1.7 metres high. I absolutely love the set up (it's behind my desk) so that when whenever I start YouTube book vlogging all my books will be in the background.
Anyway, this is just a bragging post, but I'm just too thrilled to not share it!
