DIY Shoe Storage From Old Drawer

Tired of the pile of shoes by front door or bottom of stairs? I used a large industrial sized drawer I found for free. Added wheels, painted it, instant under bench or sofa shoe storage!
I used an old drawer I found in an industrial area. Added Wheels, oversized knobs. Hides my family's shoes perfectly!
This is what I started with. I removed the printers box, can be used for another project!
I painted the exteriors with CeCe Caldwells paint. Lined the inside with newspapers and used several coats of Mod Podge to seal them. I can easily wipe the bottom of the drawer, and the newspapers were free.
The drawer slides perfectly and fits under my Bench Made Entirely of Junque!

    The shoe storage is a great idea, but I'm interested in the couch/settee you have!! What was it originally, & where did you get it? & how did you remake it? I'm redoing on the 'chea',' & I LOVE, LOVE your couch!!! TY

    Yay! Now I know what to do with those drawers we got from a bathroom tear out. (garage sale) Nice!
    What size wheels did you use?

    Great job, looks fantastic. Awesome! At first I thought it was a daybed.
