Oak drawers attached to the painted turquoise door can serve as planter boxes, or maybe roll up some towels to display in a bathroom. Storage for just about anything :)
Materials:  door, wire mesh, a rusty whatchamacallit for bling,  2 drawers, 4 boards for the legs.
The wire mesh material is attached with screws and bent outward to create a pocket for plants. You cant see in the photo, but the mesh is screwed on the sides too. If you lay burlap in the pocket just right, it can hold dirt and live plants. So pretty for outside !
The legs were attached to the drawers first to create a free standing structure, and then the drawers were screwed to the door to create one big unit.  Do I really want to sell this?!! Im sure Ill make another :)

This fun piece was created COMPLETELY with free junk.  I added the turquoise paint on the door, and the rest just came to mind on a whim!
