Dish drainer => shelf and soap dish
Materials: Magasin dish drainer
Description: When the dish drainer started to become wobbly, we decided to give it a second life.
To construct the shelf we cut the large part of the drainer in half and screwed 8mm chipboards (37cmx30cm) to the top and the bottom. The two additional boards can be put into the shelf at your convenience. All in all 30mins to create shelf where our modem, router etc fit perfectly without a big cable mess.
For the soap dish we used a small part of the drainer and cut off a piece on 13cm length. To make it symmetric we fixed a part of the leg of the drainer to the soap dish with two short nails.
