March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days!! Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back…ha ha were you singing that? Remember Welcome Back Kotter? It’s Day # 26 in my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days Series, and today I’m sharing a project that was free. Aren’t those the best kind of projects?

I had this drawer leftover…

Drawer-Shelf-Before-1

…from this dresser I shared earlier in this series:

I have two actually, but I decided to do so something with one of them and turned it into a unique shelf:

Not bad for free right?

Perfectly functional enough to hold necessities, or pretty enough to display a few treasures.

I painted this shelf in my leftover Watery by Sherwin Williams for HGTV Home, found at Lowes. I bought it originally for this laminate kitchen table.

I added paper from Hobby Lobby to the back using spray adhesive to add a little interest…

The dividers/shelves are made from scraps I already had. I cut them to fit, painted them, and used my nail gun to secure them in place.

I also filled the original holes and added a different handle that was left over from another project.

Doesn’t get better than free! 🙂

Upcycling unused items into pretty, functional pieces is my favorite. I hope you enjoyed this one too!

I’ll be back once again tomorrow to share how I upcycled one of these frames:

    The drawer shelf is Awesome. Be cool to make a collage of drawer shelves for a kids room; well anyplace actually.
    Like the saying goes; Cheap is good But FREE is better. :}
    Have a wonderful and Blessed Easter weekend.

    So cute, the best things in life are free and you have made over. Another great transformation! Love it.

  3. What did you do so you could hang the shelf?

  4. I love these simple, sweet makeovers because you create something beautiful out of something most people would throw away. You are so creative which is why you are my favorite blogger.

    • Aww Carol…If I could come through the screen and give you a big squeeze, I would! Thank you! I’m thrilled that you enjoy my all my thrifty adventures! XOXO

    I love this! Such a cute idea!

  6. Super cute! It doesn’t get any better than free! : )

  7. I love what you did with the drawer. I have been re doing the guest bath forever now and I have seen the drawers made into shelves and have really considered doing this sense storage is a problem. After seeing yours and the way you divided it I’m now on the look out for a drawer.

  8. Well you’ve done it again kid!!! The free drawer is just neat as can be. A really pretty addition to any room.

  9. I love this! I like invented storage ideas!

  10. Another wow-worthy project! Love the new look and the beautiful subtle color you painted the shelf. I am inspired to get up out of my comfy chair now and get my paint on!

  11. Once again… so cute! I was totally thinking you were going to do an ottoman :o)

  12. Happy Easter and love what you did! It is soooo much fun to repurpose things we already have lying around. The paper from Hobby Lobby is a really nice touch. When you use the nail gun, do you hold it at an angle? Just curious. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Michelle says:

    That is just so cute! What a great idea. Thanks for sharing

  14. Gorgeous! Makes me want to take apart a dresser I have to make one but guess I should really wait for a few yard sales! Thanks!

    • Thanks, Nancy! I pass up beat up dressers at thrift stores all the time and it never really occurred to me to buy any of them just for the drawers! XO
