On an earlier post,, I shared with you a bunch of things I had found on people's curbs. It was during bulk pick up. We had just moved into a house we are renting. 6 months prior, we had sold almost everything and moved in with my daughter. So, we are starting over again, on a very tight budget. We have a big pantry area, but no shelves or anywhere to put food. I found a couple of bookshelves, but they weren't very pretty. I decided I would make them work.
On this one, we had to add a piece of wood to the back of it. Of course, I found that on someone's curb as well.
I spray painted them all black. I love the Rustoleum paint. I had to buy 2 cans to paint all the shelves.
Just painting them made them look a lot better.
Next, I took contact paper and added them to the shelves.
Here's my pantry now. I have shelves for my food and I think it looks so much better. It cost me around $10.00 to have shelves and fix them up.
