Are you about to get rid of an old wooden cabinet? Do not throw away his drawers! Following the steps of our step-by-step, you will discover how to turn them into shelves. Check the strength of the drawer, including the bottom, on which your items will rest. Consolidate with a few nails. Fill holes and cracks by applying wood paste with a spatula. Clean with a damp cloth and sand. Dust off.Paint all sides with a special wood paint of the color of your choice. Let dry and apply a second coat. On the bottom board, create wide stripes by painting the second layer on only two strips. Prepare the shelves for your future shelf: measure the distance between the two drawer uprights and its depth, then put these dimensions on the boards, before sawing them. Sand the sides, dust off and pass two coats of paint.
