So the wife and I went looking for some bookcases for our bedroom. We
headed to an unfinished furniture place as I want to match a stain we have
on the other pieces in the bedroom, but I didn't have a lot of time to build
them. We looked at about 1000 different styles, but kept coming back to
some basic pine cubes. She really liked the look of them, but the price was
WAY out of line. $150 for a 5 high cube that could be built with $30 worth
of wood. The more I looked, the more I said, no I can build these and build
em quick. So I head to the wood shop, pick up $100 worth of wood to build 4
of these and head home.
I've built 2 in the past 6 weeks and the wife is starting to get that
"look". You know the one I speak of. But I can't bring myself to spend
$150 on one of these things when I can build em so dang cheap. I really
don't have a lot of build time lately thus the delay in creating them.
I've done a pretty extensive web seach to no avail. What I'm looking for is
pine cubes. A 5 high, 4 high and 3 high. Each "cube" is roughly 14x14, but
3, 4 or 5 cubes high. I'm not stacking cubes on top of each other for the
look, or maybe that would work. IF I could find them pre-built very cheap,
I'd sand and finish them easily. I need a total of 4 - 5 highs, 4 - 4
highs, and 3 - 3 highs. I've got 2 5 highs built, but can use those in
other areas of the house so I can get a consistent look in teh MBR.
Anyone have a good cheap source for these? I'd love to find where the
unfinished furniture store is buying them from and just get them in bulk.
To buy the cases from them would cost roughly $800 after all is said and
