Guide to the re-purposed home: how to turn old drawers into a stylish modular book case

Comments (1)

LooseDrawerRevamp2.jpgSeen from a distance, you'd be forgiven for thinking this stylish storage system was an original piece of '60s minimalist furniture, or bought from an expensive, quirky furniture store. But no: it's upcycling at its most basic, made by simply placing old drawers from a disused dresser found on freecycle on top of each other after giving them a lick of paint and some new lining.

The result is just so funky it makes me want to go home right now and start tearing chests of drawers from the walls and messing around with them. Visit the owner's blog, Crafty Nest to see some inspiring 'before and after' shots.
