Old furniture does not have to be thrown away, or at least without taking advantage of everything we can, for example, the drawers. By choosing a few drawers we can make an original, cheap and totally customized shelf. You just have to look for some that have the same size, similar or that fit well between them to create a solid structure.
Once we have the drawers, we must remove the handles and sand them, to leave a uniform surface throughout our bookshelf. The remaining holes / holes can be filled with silicone or other material. When they are sanded we give a layer of primer paint that will seal the pores and act against the formation of fungi. We proceed to paint them, either in one color or in several. The interior can be painted or lined with some paper or decorative fabric of our choice.
The result is in sight, beautiful.
