Country Bookcase With Sliding Glass Doors

Red Barrel Studio®

Perfect for a comfortable and casual decor style, this country-style bookshelf with glass sliding doors is easy to assemble. It comes with two adjustable shelves that let you choose where you want to position them. The four round feet and single floor post all come with floor glides to protect your floor from any damage. 

Designer Advice:

The painted gray finish on this bookshelf with glass sliding doors has a distinct French blue undertone. This will cause it to look more blue than gray once it’s set up. Paint your walls a pretty pale blue-gray color like Behr Paint’s Light French Gray or Benjamin Moore’s Silver Gray or Smoke. This will make the bookcase look like a custom piece of furniture. To customize it, even more, buy a roll of French toile wallpaper and apply it to the inside of the back of the bookshelf before assembly.

Designer Advice:

Unlike most bookshelves, this sliding glass door bookcase comes in seven beautiful colors. Choose a standard white, mid-tone gray or black option for a neutral color that’s not a wood tone.

Buying Guide

What's the best glass for a sliding glass bookcase?

If your sliding glass bookcase features fairly wide glass panels or a mainly glass-based design, it’s worth investing in tempered glass: this is the strongest type of glass used in furniture, so you won’t have to worry too much about accidental breakages.

However, if the glass panels are smaller and mainly decorative, most types of glass will do, although it’s always safer to go for thicker models.

What’s the best wood for a sliding glass bookcase?

For a sliding glass bookcase, you’re going to want a dense hardwood to provide structure for your heavy books (and that heavy glass). We’d recommend an oak or a maple for this reason; or, if you’re looking for a more cost-efficient, smaller bookcase, select a birch or a walnut.

You can paint any of these to match the colors you want in your home, or stain them darker or lighter as you wish.
