I Repurposed This Little Storage Cubby to Use in My Bathroom.


Best organization tool ever! Once I got the spider eggs and cooties off of it, it's everything I needed!
Best 9 drawers I ever had.

It was grossly dirty. I cleaned it up, replaced some knobs, and painted the outsides. Then I treated the entire piece with hemp oil.

I believe this started out life as a crate. There are letters pressed into the wood on the sides.
The drawers fell out of the back so I cut up a belt and tacked it across. Works like a charm.

Every one of these drawers is handmade from scrap metal pieces. So I'm recycling the recycled!

It's the perfect combination with the crates I was already using for storage.

    So clever! I'm looking for something like that for my media center. Nice job:)

    One of the older libraries in the area decided to discard their old storage cabinets that housed the old library system using card catalogs. I bought it for a very cheap price and decided to refurbish it. We now use it in the dining room for dining utensils. Our guests love it, since it provides character to our dining room.

      @Ericbosloor you are so lucky! I wish I could get my hands on one of those for a decent price!
