Pottery Barn Style X Bookshelf Copycat

We have been super busy this past week with lots of projects!!  One was this fabulous copycat Pottery Barn X shaped bookshelf! 

I have to tell you, I was WORRIED at first.  Bless his heart, my sweet Kenny had no plans to go by, just what I drew out for him on paper.  I'm not an artist, nor an engineer, nor a builder.  I was so worried, but he seemed to have it under control.....Good thing I trust him and have faith in what he can do with a saw!!

I felt a little better later on when I was at work and got this picture.  :)

It started out looking like this.....
 
I knew then there was hope when I saw this on my phone, but I also knew it was our first attempt at a VERY TALL bookshelf!!!  I was scared to ask!!

When I came home, it looked like THIS!

WOWIE, WOWIE, WOWIE!!!  I was so impressed!!!  Still haven't decided yet how to finish it.....I'm thinking maybe a simple whitewash.....I still can't believe he can build things like that just out of his head.  I do good to make it to get dinner on the table after work. LOL!!!!!  All of my Pinterest dreams have come true thanks to him!

This little beauty is going to be sold in our business.  I'm on the list to get an X console for behind my sofa!!  Maybe one day when we catch up....LOL!! :)
