Library Shelves

At the bottom of our stairs, there is a little nook with a cutout that we didn’t know what to do with. We decided to make this area a library and we wanted built-in shelves. Here’s the process I used when building them. I decided to put shelf holes only above and below each shelf, so you can move each shelf about 1.5” up or down from the middle position. I did not run shelf holes from the bottom all the way to the top because it degrades the look a bit and since this is a library, we wanted the flexibly to move the shelves a little, but wanted to keep it classy. We noticed Pottery Barn does the same thing on some of their furniture ;)
