There were several built in projects for the playroom including a bookshelf, some benches with storage, and some closet cubbies. All together it was a little daunting, but with my trusty screw gun, a lot of paint, and help from our Dads, we got it done in time.
Here are the parts for the bookshelf.
This bookshelf had a tiered design that took a little creativity to build. There are three section, each with a cubby on the bottom.
Here is the whole thing assembled, except for the back. Can you start to see how cool this will be once it is painted and in place?
There are two benches that will be attached to the bookcase on either side. Here is the assembled longer bench. The idea with these is plenty of seating for adults and lots of storage fir toys underneath. My Mom was able to create the padded cushions covered with a fabric Jess picked out.
Here you can see the smaller bench and how it will eventually attach to the bookshelf. And of course my trusty assistant and her umbrella.
We decided to use the existing closet in the room for recessed cubbies. This unit went together pretty quickly with the help of my dad and a second screw gun. It sure was nice not to have to switch the countersinking bit with the screw bit all the time. I know what you are thinking. You don’t think I can get this through my hallway and into the room, do you? You are right.
Here it is painted and in place. Pretty sweet, huh?
Here are the benches and bookshelf painted and in place. These were big projects I am glad to have finished.
