DIY Hollow Book Box: Final Week to a Clutter Free Room Challenge

This week I thought I’d surprise you with a fun weekend DIY project.  It will take adult supervision if there are young children helping you.  
Here is my PDF download instructions on how to make your very own hollow book box in a weekend.  Step by step instructions are included for 2 skill levels.  One for beginners for those with no power tool skills and one for advanced woodworking folks who know how to use power tools aka saws.
If, you have any questions once you receive the pdf file, feel free to contact me through our Etsy shop MySecretCompartments.


This is the final week of our 4 weeks to a clutter free room challenge.  Yay! we made it to the end of this project and we are still in one piece. hehe!
As you can see the bookcase now has our book inventory all neatly organized on the shelves.  The floor is clean and clear leaving plenty of room for dancing when the mood strikes me.

Spencer our Yorkie insists on being in the heart of the action.  But, he is such cute clutter. giggle!  
The next project will be to go through each and every drawer, bag and container and do the same 4 step process again.  That will be coming up this Fall.  Stay tuned to this blog!
Leave a comment updating me on how you are doing with your clean up challenge.  I’d love to hear from you.

Sending You Sunshine,

Marsha Jaramillo

P.S. Coming next month a whole new theme will be added to my book lover’s theme.  I’ll be sharing my own experience and knowledge with holistic alternative treatment options and eating organic on a budget with gluten free recipes and money saving sites to shop.
