House Bookshelf

Here's a bookshelf that I made a few years ago to house our picture books.  It is made out of 3/4" plywood, and is very sturdy.  One of my favorite features is the sideways shelf on the right, which holds all of our long books that stick out too far if we put them on the other shelves.

I imagined that we would occasionally empty it and use it like a toy house, but that has yet to happen.  It also has a chimney tissue holder that holds a regular square tissue box.  Here's a closer look:

I want to show you some more of my home made projects, and I was having so much fun taking pictures around the house that I left Julio happily entertaining himself at the dining table.  From the other room, I heard him say, "Cow milk.  Want it!"  And then his big brother call out, "I'll get it for you, Julio!"  I got back just in time to see this near-disaster:


  1. The chimney and "smoke" tissues are genius, Maiz!

  2. Brilliant! Love the chimney's tissue smoke - so cool!

  3. Love love love! Oh how I wish I could make wooden things like this!

  4. The bookshelf is adorable...and I remember making that disaster myself, once upon a time. :) Thanks for the memory!
