Built In Bookshelves

I am a book lover and have been dreaming of having some nice, sturdy bookshelves to house them for years! I came across some I loved on a blog a year or two back and showed them to my husband. The blog gave great directions on how to build them, so when we saved up the money for the project, we got started on them. We tweaked the directions a bit and changed a couple things, but I am thrilled with how they turned out! They look fantastic and hold so many books, not to mention dishes and things in the lower cabinets. They are in our dining room, so the cabinet sections come in handy for holding all my tablescaping dishes, glasses, and serving pieces. This project was a labor of love and I am so thankful for a husband who is willing to take on my crazy ideas and make my dreams come true!
