For some, a place in the home dedicated solely to reading may seem an obvious choice. More projects? There is something about the connection one cultivates with a favorite book- a cherished novel that may have their name inscribed within; having been borrowed and returned again throughout the years… One refers back to it for favorite passages or quotes and will re-read it time and again.

    Tips for getting the best results on your top coat Apply at least two coats preferably 3. If you are on a budget, you can probably skip this step, because the paint on its own is pretty amazing in terms of coverage. And you'll pick up all the trade secrets you need to add permanent value to your home, by creating attractive storage space and eliminating clutter. Grrrr……it will make you crazy. For example, the ceiling portion of this overhang in our media room was terrible un-level.

    Next we lined all the cabinets up and put them in place. Or worse, what if you mess up and ruin it? This gives a nice flat surface to attach baseboards to later which really helps give the look of custom built ins. We used 3 more little Ikea units to create the center of the Built-In, which already came with drawers and doors and hinges etc…. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below. Lastly, I decided on my shelf arrangement and filled all of the spare shelf holes with spackling.

Built-ins book

Attach the cabinets to each other, base and wall 4. We will have more on Built-ins book in later posts. When you nail on your side boards, you will nail one side to the front of your bookcase and the other side to these wood supports.

We used L brackets to attach the base to the floor. This seemed easier than removing the molding, and since we have an older house, that crown molding is probably nicer than current materials.

Build and Attach the Cabinet Faces Here is the where the cabinets really take form. So, we figured that these shelves have lasted this long, were still really strong and sturdy, and seemed to be holding up as good as anything else, so we used them as a base and created a whole Custom Built-In look with them.

However, the room was already wired for speakers and all that electrical stuff and Steve was so excited at even the slightest possibility of finally having a room that was dedicated to big screens and loud volume numbers and lots of electrical wiring and nerdy stuff like that!

But, we decided to make the top all one height, to give the crown some uniformity. And let Built-ins book tell you, this thing is one sturdy piece of not-going-anywhere furniture!

Now, because we were trying to hide more height than the height of the tallest crown molding we could find, we decided to create the stacked look which is also a very common way to create taller crown molding. We used pocket screws and a jig to attach the 1x2s to each other. The downside of not using backing is it makes the bookcases much less stable, but we are adding plenty of trim and wood facing so these are still solid as a rock.

Adding the faces is merely just building some rectangles and attaching them to the cabinet with some finish nails. I filled this groove in with caulk. We used screws that would be under the uppers to secure it as well.

And the process for piecing that together and staining it, was similar to our Octagon Dining Room Table Tutorial. This little Built-In houses some of our players and a game console and then the drawers hold movies and some workout weights and such.

This was actually fairly simple. Caulk all of the seams. So smooth. Build a base 2. Sometimes you have to be kind of anal during this to make sure the employee cutting is making accurate cuts. Now, your crown molding needs something to attach to.

But you sometimes have to find solutions. Materials Affiliate links included for your convenience. A carefully appointed book nook brings life to a space that may otherwise go unnoticed.
