make your own animal silhouette bookcases

July 2, 2010

Have you seen these exceptionally cute and exceptionally expensive animal silhouette bookcases from DwellStudio? I love them, but would never pay what they are asking for. 

I just saw a beautiful DIY version @ Adventures in Creating that I would love to do if only I owned a jigsaw. (Which I do not, by the way and haven't used one since 8th grade Industrial Arts class, but I like to think that it would all come back to me...)

I thought I would share it with any of you that DO happen to have a jigsaw handy! I'd also love to see what shape you create if you do make one!

These are so cute, I will have to show my woodworker husband! Thanks for the Yancy CD, too! We're loving it so far!

I love this idea! I am redecorating my daughter's room and need a bookshelf. I now regret this statement, but told my husband recently that next time around I'm marrying someone handy (not that there will be a next time around). I just really want to be able to make things ourselves without hiring everything out!!

I know, I wish I had more woodworking skills or Ben did, but unfortunately, neither of us do! So, now I just need to find a generous neighbor who wouldn't mind building something for us from time to time. :)

Love it! I just got a jig saw for my birthday... I'll have to see if I can whip something up!

I can't wait to see it, Leigh!
