$1 Goodwill Shelf Transformation....Deployment Project #4

I found this shelf at my local Goodwill recently....it was $1.50...marked down on clearance for $1....

SOLD!

It's just your typical partical board shelf...not sure what this belonged to...possibly it once sat on a desk...or was a headboard to a twin bed???

Who knows, but for $1 I decided to bring it home and give it a little TLC.

As you can see, there was a big front panel on this shelf.

I took the panel off and measured the inside of the shelf.

I went by Lowe's and bought a board for $2.80 to go inside to form another shelf, came home and inserted the shelf.

I painted it all with 2 coats of semi-gloss paint I already had.

After spending a total of $3.80, I now have a great shelf for storing my sewing supplies!!

My craft room is on my list for a well due make-over......just not there yet! :-)

HAPPY FRIDAY!

That is awesome, what a simple but fantastic idea to make another shelf...I can't always 'see' things like that. I love your craft room, I wish I had a craft room, my sewing machine and craft stuff lives in my laundry. Have a great day, Karen xx

that's too cool to use an old storage headboard for a new hutch!

Cathy Epps said...

What a great idea! I would have never been able to see the potential in the old shelf like you did. I shown Jack a picture of your craft room hoping he'll get the hint I would love one too!

Good job!

Wow! What a steal for $1! Good for you for having the vision to turn the bottom half into something useful, too. It's perfect for your craft room!

Saw you at Metamorphosis Monday.

Yes, I think it was a headboard. Your makeover really transformed it. What an attractive and very functional piece you've created. Well done!

Wow a whole buck!! I can't believe it was that cheap. Great idea to insert another shelf. Just love it on your sewing table. What a great find.

That's a great transformation on the piece and what a swingin' deal you got on it! The stuff at my GW is so overpriced.

I love your organization! Nicely done. I'm visiting from Fingerprints on the Fridge. I'd love it if you'd come link up at my Home and Family Friday Linky Party. I host a party every Friday.

A dollar?!?! You scored! I love GW! A couple of crafty friends and I do GW runs and hit all of them near us on a 50% off day! Super fun!

Stacy@{share and remember} said...

GREAT! Our GW would have charged $20 at least for that.
