In DIY Furniture

My family loves books.  I am a pastor and my wife is an English teacher, so not only do we love books, but we also have a lot of books.  When I designed our living room entertainment center, I knew I had to make it with as much space for books as possible.

Entertainment Center Bookcase

I saw an Ikea Lack inspired bookcase on that became my inspiration for the entire entertainment center.  My bookcases are 84 inches tall instead of 72 inches as described on Ana’s website.  Also, I added adjustable shelves.  I attached two shelves at the height of 28 inches and 42 inches, but the rest of the shelves I made adjustable with the Kreg Shelf Pin Jig.

I was planning on making a simple frame for doors.  However, my wife thought normal doors were boring.  I showed her a few options, and she really liked the Anthropologie inspired doors on  I just had to make a few adjustment to the plans from Shanty 2 Chic to get the doors to fit the bookcases.
