At Our House, Now a Home, Emily shares a terrific rescue project. “I got this spool as a freebie when I was picking up some chairs
from a craigslist post,” she explains. “It was going to be thrown out” Emily had a feeling that she could turn it into something amazing, so she brought it home and did just that!
Since the shelf they had been using to store children’s books was broken, Emily was looking for another book storage option. She cut out a circular shelf from 1/2 inch plywood. She used 3/4 inch dowel rods to hold the shelf in place. Once the shelf was constructed, Emily painted the whole thing white. Now it pulls double duty in her study as both a bookshelf and a small table. “It holds roughly 90 books,” she says of the newly finished shelf. Awesome!
