More Trash to Treasure from the Curb

Well, I just got back from spending a week in San Diego during my kids spring break visiting family. Between that, figuring out my taxes (UGH!). I also finished the bookcase for my boys room - now if only my camera would cooperate and stop taking grainy photos! I think I need to change the ISO.

On with the post, I was driving on one of the highways near my home when I spotted this bookcase as well as two taller ones on the side of the road in front of a locally owned printing shop. I went inside to make sure they were free (which they were) and then proceeded to load it into my minivan BY MYSELF. People driving by must of thought I was crazy.

I had told my oldest son that I would build him a bookcase next that was extra deep in order to hold more of his larger lego creations. I figured that I would put this free one in his room as sort of a prototype to see if it would work out before building him one. But its been a hit so I think I'm going to put that project on the backburner and whip out another bookcase for the living room since he doesn't mind at all having a free bookcase in his room. You see the airplane on the top right shelf - that gives you an idea of how deep it goes!
