Introduction: Vintage Bookcase With Legs
Runner Up in the
Book It! Contest
Because I did not take pictures of the above steps, I drew what I did.
I had a vertical bookcase, which was awkward to use. So I decided to change it.
I disarmed the entire cabinet (which had made myself) and cut the shelves.
After i hid the screwheads, with the appropiate paste, y painted two coats of white, and two coats of turquoise paint.
Step 2: Refurbishing Legs!
This is the part that makes me feel more proud.
These legs belong to a desk that my aunt was going to bounce. I asked her to give me the legs for my next instructable It was her first desk
So, i sanded and add water to see how there going to be.
And also remove the extra parts.
Step 3: In My House
Then i took the sanded legs to my house, where i cut them in a 90 degrees angle. And cut it a little, because there where too long.
I gave three layers of lacquer
Step 4: Make a Template for the Dowels
I started making a square on a piece of cardboard, trace the legs, marked an X and did other marks where the dowels will be.
I use the template for the legs and the case.
Then drill the whole marks. (4 in each leg, and 4 in every corner of the base)
Step 5: Glue the Dowels
Put pva glue in the dowels, and the base of the case.
For the safety of my floor, i inserted some nails with plastic head, that i had for another proyect. Drill a smaller hole in the center of each leg.
I do not even remember where I found the plasticheaded nails
Step 6: And Thats All!
