Take a distressed old drawer and hang it on your wall for use as a wall shelf. You can make it look old or new with paint, even add contact or wallpaper to the inside for a cheerful look. And leaving the knobs on at the bottom can serve as hangers for chimes, mobiles, or whatever you choose, maybe even kitchen towels.
I think this is a great website, but pictures would add alot!
Thank you Patricia for this great idea! I can just picture it! It could be painted pink for that shabby and chic look :)
My husband did this for our daughter, when she lived in an apartment that had no medicine cabinet in the bathroom. Her toiletries were everywhere. We had and old table with a drawer, so painted it and hung on the wall of the bath. All that "stuff" came off the surfaces and into the shelf.
