convert a vestby bed frame to a bookcase
it was quite simple, and made really efficient use of the materials the vestby was comprised of. pictured below (left) are the six, six-inch long pieces of wood that were the only pieces salvaged from the original vestby (right) that i didn’t use in the bookshelf. i used everything else, including all the hardware, and only needed to buy a box of screws to finish the project.
this project was actually quite cost-effective as well. the vestby costs $59 CDN, and the pine itself would cost about $70 to buy at home depot, according to my estimate.”
