Upcycled Dresser Drawers

2 Materials
4 Hours

I found this buffet that i turned into a TV STand I had to take the drawers out for all of our cable boxes, game consoles, and dvd players to fit. They laid in my garage forever, until it hit me. These would be perfect for books!

First we removed the drawers from the stand. We then cut them down to a smaller size. After that I removed the hardware then primed and painted them, and secured them to the wall. Voila! Functional bookshelves.

    I'd love to see the dresser you've changed to a TV station. Could you show us? I have a similar piece of furniture and would love to know how to convert as you did.

    I love it! How did you hang them on the wall securely?
