Excuse the pictures, it's still a disaster down in the basement family room, but I am quite pleased with our progress so far.
|This was how stuffed full the bookcases were before we started. We had six total of these full-size bookcases.|
We had also been contemplating building a new shelf unit to hold the DVDs. The shelves on these cases are just too far apart and there was a lot of wasted space. Then Jeff had the brilliant idea to look inside the cabinet that had been blocked behind the bookshelf and found this.
It's not the most elegant solution, but it is inexpensive as we'll likely use materials we have kicking around our garage to finish it.
Right now the doors are huge and they bind up on the floor so Jeff will have to spend some time modifying them so we can more easily open and close them. Stay tuned. It will probably be a month or two before we get through this project because we're distracted with lots of other things right now.
