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…
…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:
See ya then, my friends!
UPDATE: See it HERE now!
