Big Green Bookcase

Is that a big green bookcase?  Is it missing a drawer?  Look at it’s size.  I knew I wanted it!  It was in the garage though.  It didn’t have a price at the Estate Sale.  It was missing a drawer.  It was dirty.  Now a little dirt I can clean it up.  A missing drawer, well that is where Bob comes in.  He offered to build a drawer!  I’m thinking “like a real drawer”, “one that works”,  “you can do that?” OK – I’m in, let’s get it!

So we negotiated a price and carried it out of the garage.   It needed some help. The bottom fell off on the way to the van.   Oh my what am I getting myself into?

When children at age 10 worked right along with the family building and surviving life.

Back to the bookcase.  With a new drawer, some knobs and paint she is as good as new!  I wanted to keep her.  Wouldn’t it look great in an office?  That’s why I styled it as an office bookcase.  It really has so many possibilities.
