While cleaning out our garage, Ev and I came across these old dresser drawers. The broken dresser had long been discarded; however, we had kept the drawers to use as boxes when we moved into our house about a year and a half ago. Being the type of people that do not like to throw things out, we immediately decided to turn these guys into our new shelves (which I had been on Ev for a while to make). I cannot take credit for how these turned out, Ev cleaned, painted, and mounted these on the wall while I was at work a few weeks back. I was so pleased with the outcome and will be checking campus dumpsters for dresser drawers to hang in the office, bedroom, and hobby room. Just a quick, easy, cheap idea I thought was worth sharing!
supplies needed: old dresser drawers, paint, 3" nails
notes: don't forget to locate studs before nailing! Otherwise, your shelves may come crashing down!!
