Last week I went to Grand Rapids, MI to help build a book wall in the lobby of a publishing companies new building. I have some photos to show you. We didn't have enough to build the wall to the very top, but it's still awesome. We'll either put a thick piece of glass on top and have it be a shelf or someone will finish it later.
The building was still being worked on, so I don't have a good "after" photo yet. But this is the full wall in the space.
It was really fun planning out the wall on the fly. We didn't get a chance to plan ahead.
