Old WoodenBookshlefAugust 9th, 2010 in member junk
This was my dads old bookshelf that he had as a child. He allowed my 2 little brothers to have it in their room for years, and it got destroyed. They had pet rats who ate chucks out of the sides. It was banged up and falling apart. If you looked at it wrong...it would fall over to one side! So my dad decided to throw it out...which meant it came to my house! After A LOT of wood putty...and a ton of patience, I turned this beast into another beauty that now is in the hallway filled with my sons books! 3 Generations have now used this Old Wooden Bookshelf!
After it was done, my dad asked when he could take it back home! I laughed and said NEVER! Your junk my treasure!
The back is lined with a vintage tablecloth that I dyed burgandy for contrast. The center wooden plug was missing, so I glued in a vintage brass button that covered the hole perfectly.
