The major bookshelves for Bedroom 2 and 3 are now complete and installed. Bedroom 2 has larger spacing between shelves as there are a different mix of books .. audio books to be exact and other larger items to store on them!
Bedroom 1 now has it book shelves installed. 11We have added an extra line of shelves so there are now 18 shelves all together. The bottom line will only serve as an odd and ends shelf as it lines up with the base platform level of the bed frame. Each shelf is 1145mm (3feet and […]
