I have two desk drawers I would like to make a bookcase headboard for a queen bed using them. Any suggestions?

Hi Carla, You could take come wood to build the headboard and then add the drawers vertically so that they act as shelves. You could also just mount the drawers on the wall so they act as shelves.
Hi Carla. Ok so this goes in the other direction, where they took a headboard and turned it into a hutch. But the style of the headboard looks like something you might be able to copy with your desk drawers.
Hi Carla: I agree with Recreated Designs. Making something like a shadow box out of them would be nice, you could put lights in them, wall paper the inside backs and paint the rest. You don't have to put them square on the wall, you could turn them to make a somewhat diamond design, put a shelf from the opposite corners. Other than that, I'm out of ideas :)
Hello Carla. If you build a box the same width as the headboard, and lay the box on its side to face you, you could mount the drawers on top of the box to create a bookcase.
Screw them on to a large enough board or existing headboard in the desired design from the back. start at the top and place the other one accordingly. Should not take too long to do!
I guess you could hang the drawers on either side of the bed to use like shelves.
You could hang them on the side of the bed like end tables
here are some ideas for bookcase headboard
Can you just hang them on the wall, with the bottom of the drawer along the wall, so the drawer front is the shelf on the bototm?
Hi Carla, hope this helps,
I would hang them on the wall ... What a great project o have
Hi! Youcan mount them on the wall to a plywood backing at the right height. Good luck!
I think it will depend on the dimensions of the drawers and how you plan to make use of them incorporated into the headboard. You might try laying them out in several configurations and see what you might need to fill in. Search bookshelf headboards online for extra inspiration.
