Julie Petrella was inspired by Anthropologie's use of dresser drawers as display shelves in one of their stores and tried her hand at it when her brother was getting rid of an old dresser.
She rescued the drawers from it, painted them with a cool geometric pattern for use in her own shop. We think this idea would suit a kids' space equally well, allowing for front facing books and accessible toy storage.
Visit homeMADE to see Julie's tips on painting the drawer pattern as well as for her link to Anthropologie's version of the same idea.
