Turn an Old Drawer Into a Wall Storage Shelf

One of the funnest old things to find a new use for is old drawers. There is no reason a well-made drawer should ever end up in a landfill or burn pile, when there are so many useful and decorative ways to repurpose them.
When I converted an antique dresser into an entertainment center, the top drawers were removed so the dvd player and game system could go in their spot, but I knew I could find a way to turn them into something else that was useful.
I decided to turn them into unique wall storage shelves, that look beautiful, and make a great place to hold remote controls and decorative items.
See how we did it at the link below at Knick of Time, and see the makeover of the old dresser into the entertainment center here - http://knickoftime.net/2014/09/antique-dresser-entertainment-center.html

    Sometimes, all you need to have is a lot of imagination and creativity coupled with a little bit of DIY. This happens whenever I visit thrift shops and see some old storage cabinets. I saved a lot of money doing some DIY for the home and even giving these away for friends as gifts. They absolutely love our DIY storage cabinets.

    Nothing is impossible to achieve as long as creativity still resides in the mind. All it ever needs is the right set of resources and a touch of crafting skills to produce an extraordinary masterpiece. I agree on refurbishing old/vintage furniture pieces into a modern storage solution as opposed to the idea of it getting burnt up completely to a wasted pile of trash.
