I have had a fancy for one of these square display shelves for a while. I asked my hubby to make me one and also thought I might have a go at knocking one up myself.
I decided I no longer needed this cupboard that had once been my potting station but lay unused at the side of the house. I had an idea...
....of putting the drawers to use
I used the front and 2 sides of one drawer and the front of the other drawer to complete a rectangle and look how it turned out...
With the 2 sides and 2 backs left over, I made the shelving inserts
I used a nail gun to attach the cross shelves
and glued in the down sections
Then I gave it all a rough sanding once it was all dry and filled it with some of my favourite nicknacks
I like the rustic look of it. It sits in the lounge room and I like having a spot to put some of my favourite little goodies.
It was a little bit of a challenge for me to make (I am more at home with fabric than wood) and I did need a bit of assistance from the hubs from time to time. I was pleased with how my one turned out.
What d'you reckon?
I'll show the one that the hubby made in another post.
