Bookshelves don’t have to be boring! By just changing up the front trim (called the “face frame”) you can give your storage piece a completely different look!
Yes, this is just a simple bookshelf, with a chunkier face frame! It gives this piece a modern but crisp look – so mountain modern!
Why I Built this Bookshelf
I built this piece for our cabin in the mountains, where I’m craving a simplified life, with less things to pick up, less details to dust and wipe down, but still looking to be inspired and encouraged by the surroundings. I needed the storage for shoes, hats, gloves, sunglasses – entryway dropzone stuff – but wanted a piece that could also look good empty. I do love an empty shelf. It’s an opportunity to put something away.
Can I Build a Custom Size?
For my bookshelf, I built a custom size to fit in the space perfectly. If you are building it, you might as well get the right size, tailored for your space.
I love this plan because it is very easy to customize the size in both height and width! You can build just about any size you can think up!
The tutorial below will show you how to size yours just right for your space without doing any crazy math or worrying about making mistakes.

Mountain Modern Bookshelf Plans
Here are the plans for this bookshelf. I decided to do this one more as a template (so you can customize the sizes) – since getting the perfect fit is so important. It will be easy to come up with a cut list and shopping list once you have your carcass laid out.
Thank you for using our plans, we appreciate the trust and support.
