I made Jamie some shelves out of some old dresser drawers and some kitchen drawers. I screwed them together with drywall screws, top to bottom and side to side.
I painted them at home, then delivered them to her. I painted them brown. She took them for a little spin, and decided she'd rather not have them brown.
She decided (and I agreed) black would be better. That was several months ago. Since then she has been looking for some "special" paper to line them.
Here, you can see that she has the paper put in the back. She simply used double stick tape.
I’m linking this older post to Maryann’s POPP to show how much difference a coat of paint makes!

Gail reinvented herself during a midlife crisis and has found purpose again. She hopes you will find new ideas for old things and pick up a few tools along the way.
