Last year I did a post featuring Lakley’s bedroom makeover and I was so excited when I found out it was the number 1 in the top 15 Housewives of Riverton posts in 2014. You can check it out here. I absolutely love the way her room turned out and I’m so glad I documented it because I’m actually in the process of changing this room since Lakley is at college.
Today I want to share with you how I made this wall shelf. You wont believe what I made it out of!
Yep… your right its made from 2 old drawers from a dresser. When redoing the kids room it was time to get rid of an old dresser that I had used with all 3 kids since they were babies and I knew we could no longer use the dresser but I wasn’t ready to get rid of it because it had been with us so long. I thought well then I should make something with it and that is how this shelf came about.
I then measured the back of the drawer and cut a piece of foam board and batting to fit and covered both with a fabric that I had picked. I simply duct taped it because I could easily change it if I ever want to. The thought next was to tuft it with a button or something and I actually found that a dresser knob (to keep in the theme) worked best. The bad thing is you will need a way to cut the long screw off the knob so it will fit flush to the back of the shelf which Kelly did for me with a hack saw.
Its truly one of my favorite things that I’ve made. I hope this shelf has helped excite you to get creative with a dresser you may have that needs an up-do!!
