Building furniture.. YAY!

So..... I found an AWESOME website . When i found it I tried to call everyone I knew who would care... no one answered... but that was ok! I got busy choosing the first thing I would build!

After buying a station wagon it was the perfect opportunity to fold down the seats and put wood in the back! Unfortunately the bunnings man cut the wood incorrectly! But its all good... just meant my shelves were a little bit longer and a little bit shorter...
Here is Suki checking out the supplies... she is intrigued...

So there was some man help... Al's Dad instructed us on the first set of shelves... the amount of wood made two! So I made the second set on my own!

Suki was impressed. She had a go of sitting on both levels. You can see here we added a cross bar thingy to stop the wibble wobbles... The next set I had a go at not using the cross brace... it seems ok... Father in law may be doesn't agree...

And finished! Sanded filled, primed and painted! And already it has gone to my sister's new bubby's room:) And she is filling them with fabric boxes to keep stuff in:) And my second set... is still nude of paint... but in use.. so that is ok:)

  1. so so sweet!!! well done! suki was chief inspector of the whole operation huh? hehe

  2. wow that's fantastic alanna! was it hard? was it just glue and a screwdriver? I don't have the patience for bits of dowel that have to line up. i love the shelves, it's exactly what i need for my kidlet but one level high so he can have his parking garage on the top.

  3. no dowel! NO screws! although you could use screws i guess! just nails and glue! we predrilled the nails into the mdf bits because they can split the mdf in the long length she was suggesting. you should check out the plans on the website! they have so much kids stuff!

    yes helena:) chief inspector... always. hehe:)

  4. Oh my gosh!! This is so impressive.
