THERE are shelves, and there are shelves. There are so many ways to display collectibles or store items, but we always strive for something unique, creative and environment-friendly.
Here’s a cool idea we came up with that might get you into a DIY frenzy—shelves made of old drawers for a cubbyhole effect that draws the eye to look closely at what lies inside!
What you’ll need:
Drawer from an old chest or armoire
Patterned paper, wrapping paper
Directions: Measure the back panel of your drawer. Cut your patterned paper to size.
Using double-sided tape, stick the paper on the back panel of your drawer. This will serve as a “wallpaper” or backdrop.
Arrange your collectibles within the space.
You can either hang the drawer or just let it stand on a table or mantle.
Gathering old drawers and using them as display cubbyholes filled with different vignettes can make quite an interesting collection in itself!
