Old Drawer Shelf

Make a cozy corner in your living room with an old drawer shelf!

This is quite easy to do. The hard part is getting the drawer you want. I’ve used a drawer from our living room table. The same table used for making the Mini Trees. If you don’t have an old drawer, browse thrift stores, your grandma’s house and you might find that old looking, skewed, half painted cozy drawer that will look good up on the wall.

Supplies: An old drawer, a spirit level, 2 loop screws, 2 nails and a hammer. Start with attaching the loop screws. Then hold the drawer on the wall with the spirit level on top of it. When you got it placed where you want it and are sure that it is straight, use a nail and make a mark on the wall through both the loops. Now hit the nails into the marks and hang the drawer on the wall.

In the corner we have also hung a lamp to ensure good lightning for reading or blogging, a Ball Pendel by Frandsen. The pillow which states “The Pillow – since 2014” is custom made at Tiny Prints.
