I build a bookcase

One might wonder why a woman who spends weeks shopping at every furniture store in two counties for the perfect couch and finally has to special order it custom-built, would settle for assemble-yourself furniture in the same room.  I guess partly to save a little money and partly because this was a very pretty bookcase for furniture you assemble yourself.  Took me two hours on a Sunday afternoon.  Finished height is 48", I think.  I don't want any furniture taller than me in this room.  Here are the start and finish photos.

The couch and chair get delivered the first week in September, hopefully.  Window shutters are installed the week of September 19th.  Then I'll look around and decide what else is needed to complete the room.

Kudoos. Anything with more than three parts or a manual more than 3pages I REFUSE to deal with. And yes Mrs T pitches right in...:)
