If you have never been to Ana's blog, then you must check it out! She designs plans for "knock off" furniture from places such as Pottery Barn, Ballard Designs, West Elm, etc... and posts the plans, material lists, sometimes even exact cutting plans on her blog FREE!!!
And now is an even better time to check her out as she is having a giveaway!!! If you go to her site, and enter her giveaway, please note in your comment that you hear about her from me - then maybe we can both win!!! She is having a giveaway to celebrate 1,000,000 blog hits since the start of her blog 3 months ago - as a fellow blogger I can only image that many hits - way to go Ana!!!
So, my center worktable that I blogged about here will be redesigned (slightly smaller) to accomodate two of these...

...that hubby and I will be making - only without the drawers - I just want shelves where the drawers are - at least for now - maybe later I will decide I want or need the drawers and we can make them then.

She has the plans for the basic bookshelf (the secretary pictured above is just 2 stacked on top of each other, with drawers inserted, and a drop down desk) on her site now. They will fit perfectly on either side of a floor to almost-ceiling window on one wall of our dining room/office.
Now, before she posts another "must have piece" I'd better get to Lowe's and get the supplies I need for these.
Assuming I don't change my mind another dozen times, I will post pictures of my progress in making these for you when I get them started.
