Tied Up Drawer Niche

A drawer up-turned to make a hanging wall shelf!


It’s always fun to work with things that can be made into something that they were not meant to be. And for our next DIY, we have the same contextual intention. We have all used drawers to store or shove things in. But in this project we convert the drawer into a wallhanging niche: for us to store our beautiful decor possessions.

The idea is as simple and as effective as it could be. All we need is an old drawer and a rope. It’s good to give the worn out drawer a nice paint job to add the newness to it. Then we drill in 2 holes on either side on the upper end of the drawer. Next just pass on the rope through the holes and knot them up so as to not let the rope slip off. Once done with these steps, all we need to do is to hang the now vertical drawer on a nice, empty wall.

The drawer can now be used as a shelf to show-case our beautiful homely knick-knacks. Make vignettes of vases, photo-frames, clocks, books or anything you find appealing. Your very own home-created niche/shelf made of a drawer is ready to flank your walls and flaunt your possessions.
