Upcycle Drawer into Bookshelf


Another fast and easy upcycle. This book shelf was made out of two drawers. First I took off the drawer fronts. Easy as removing one screw. Then I screwed them together using four screws.

Then I flipped it, and added four more screws. I used two sides of another drawer to make a shelf in each drawer.


Next I added mounting hardware to the back. With this step it was important to make sure the hangers were sturdy and would line up to stud. Final step was hanging and adding books.
