Love the chair-where is it from?

- Who makes the chairs?

  • Beth Buffetta
    I like the bookcase against the left wall. Where is that from?
  • summilux
    Hi Beth B.- The bookcase is from my shop. I made it to house records primarily, but it is also where we keep recently acquired books.

Where can I purchase/order the library ladder?

  • summilux
    The hardware (metal ladder parts, rail) are available from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware (Rockler.com). While the ladder itself is not included (they cater to woodworking hobbyists), the instructions are very strait forward. When doing my homework, I saw other sites that could sell you the whole works, but they were of course more expensive and type of wood I wanted (cambia poplar) wasn't an option.

    If you are in the Minneapolis area, there is currently one on Craigslist - search "library ladder"

Love the blue door! Could you tell me the name of the color/company?

      @Tracy Briens- thanks for the complement and your interest. You need some steel plate brackets that a metal fabricator/worker can make for you easily and fairly inexpensively. I used roofing joists recycled from a carport I tore down and from the roof and ceiling removed to raise the ceiling height for this room. These were glued together to make 13 inch wide shelves. It is important to use lag bolts to secure the brackets to wall studs. Then screw in the shelves to the brackets. Hope that helps and sorry for the late reply. I look in on Lakier's ideabook of our house to answer questions and see folk's comments. Like many DIY's I have a blog about our ongoing work to our home.
