So I had an old drawer that I had gotten at a habitat restore for only $2.  In my previous apartment I had used it above my refrigerator for extra concealed storage space.

But after my move I’ve realized that a lot of stuff that were in my old apartment just don’t seem to work in this apartment.  Especially this drawer since there wasn’t enough room above my new refrigerator for it!  So I started thinking about what I could do to it.  I moved into a wonderful new apartment but the only issue with it is there is not much storage space in the bathrooms.  So I thought I would try to make this drawer into a shelf.  I had seen some online and thought it would fit perfectly.  I had my mom put a shelf in it for me because she is much better at that kind of stuff then me!  Here it is with the shelf hung up where I thought I’d put it.

As I was deciding what color I wanted to paint it I started to think maybe I have too much turquoise in my apartment.  So I decided I would paint it another color.  The color I ended up with was shamrock green.  The shower curtain I picked for this bathroom is navy, turquoise, gray, and green floral.  So I went to work on making this drawer into a shelf.

The first thing we did was sand it down some just to smooth it out.

Then I started painting it green!  You’ll see it here after its first coat with some other projects you will see posted soon!!

Once, I put two coats of paint on it I added a layer of polyurethane to it so that I wouldn’t have to worry about it getting as wet or dirty.  Here is the before and after.

It’s not a huge difference but its exactly what I needed! I then added some little stuff that a guest might need.  I put a toothbrush and a small toothpaste, some toilet paper, some little samples of shampoos and soaps I had, and a jar of rose petals for a little bit of an extra something.

I love the way it turned out and I think it is exactly what I needed in the bathroom!

  1. Great reuse. Don’t you hate trying to figure out what to do with all the left overs when you move? You are more creative than I am. Mine just go in the garage.

  2. I love to see old things get a new breath of fresh air. Love the before picture on top of the refrigerator. My house is full of could be neat projects….I better get busy. Visiting you from Rock and Share
