Two identical pieces...three bucks apiece
Less expensive than buying the raw material.
Removing the bottoms
with my handy dandy tools.
The bottoms will find a new purpose.
Andrew's hats need dust proof boxes.
I score my heavy cardboard from between my art canvas
so I can bend and assemble them for box lids.
I have a plan...I always have a plan.
The box tops are covered with state maps of places we've visited.
The pieces are still identical but only shorter. The boxes turned sideways will fit perfectly and all this will be used to organize a teen's closet. Yeah, right!
This is kinda how it will look in the closet when the boxes are turned and all pieces a matching color. The two shelves on the end were the bottom shelves on my pieces. Stacked and secured everything's ready to paint or maybe, just maybe, they will go into the closet just like this. Out of sight, out of mind.
This is my work area so don't go zooming in on my sawdust and box of scraps. I see the end pieces on the left waiting to be re-purposed but I'm kinda tired of this project.
It's WalMart's fault!! I saw a nice shelf with four boxes for only $149...boxes not included. Silly me, thought, I can do that. The twin shelves jumped out at Salvation Army and came home with me. Shelves...$6, boxes...$15 for three...shoe rack...$8(a bad idea) and the idea was born, Slowly, painfully, but born nonetheless. So for a mere $29 I have solved a problem with the rest of the material on hand and I have two drawers. Walmart's didn't have that!
I sincerely hope if I have any more grand ideas and you know about it, please, please stop me.
