Sometimes things get "stored" in my garage and I spend a few years kicking them around.
My daughter started raising bees several years ago. She would occasionally bring home old "bee boxes" to paint.
One has been hanging out in my garage for...oh, I would say at LEAST two years. Waiting to be painted. Never happened.
In my quest to "organize" my mess of a garage I decided to purge a few things...but it is always hard for me to toss anything wood. One of my few "hoarding" tendencies.
An old bee box...scrap pieces of bead board from another project...old dresser drawer pieces...hum....what to do, what to do!?
Yep...a "bee box" shelf.
I used one side of an antique dresser drawer as the shelf and the scrap bead board for the back. A little glue...a few nails. I sanded the box and the shelf to clean them up a bit. (I could actually smell the honey!)After sanding and assembling I sprayed the entire piece with a clear coat just to seal the "chippy" paint.
Not my style so of course it will be sold, but just a quick reminder that you can turn any old "scraps" into something pretty and functional with just a little imagination...this didn't take too much time or any expensive tools...just a saw to cut the shelf, a hammer and a little sand paper.
Next week I'll share the project that produced all the scrap bead board...another "repurposing" project!
