You can build your bookcase to order online by selecting the leg style, panel design, drawer knob and color which best fits your style and bedroom design. Leg styles include a straight taper leg and a distinctive turned bun foot. Side panel designs include traditional bead board, a wide board design or a clean flat panel. The seven different knob options provide a nice range of design looks. In addition to our many standard options, custom sizes are available to fit any of your needs.
Offered in 70+ standard paint colors, the Short Wide Cottage Bookcase can also be finished with the custom color of your choice. Each finished piece involves a primer coat and two coats of a water based acrylic lacquer for a durable and lasting finish. Do you need color ideas? Check out “Find & Explore Paint Colors“.
