Recyle Drawers Into Shelves

I kept these wooden drawers from an old waterbed because I had a brainstorm....

....with the addition of a board across the middle, I could make some cool shelves!

And here is how they came out! LOVE IT!

I spray painted them then Mod Podged neat papers inside. 
The turquoise shelf has tan tissue paper from Starbucks. 
The black shelf has damask scrapbook paper.
The white shelf has pages from an old book.

Using craft paint I dry brushed all the edges and corners
 for a vintage look and sealed them with clear spray acrylic.

Then I had some fun styling them up for photos. I think this one is my favorite.

Now I am always on the lookout for sturdy wooden drawers. 
I have loads of ideas for making more in different styles. 
AND, this is a fun project!

I didn't buy a thing for this project. I had everything on hand.
I call that a win win!
