MOPPE Magazine Rack
Materials: 1 large drawer from Moppe mini chest of drawers, Saw, Tacks, Sandpaper, Paint, Drill, Screws and Rawl Plugs
Description: My husband had been wanting a magazine rack for the downstairs toilet for ages, I'd been looking for something to hack but with no luck. One day he pulled the front off the large drawer from a set of Moppe mini drawers that had been used in the shed for a few years and had become a bit swollen with damp. I thought to myself I could hack the drawer to make a rack!!
Step 1 - Cut the joints from the ends of 1 long side of the drawer. Sand the edges.
Step 2 - Place the long side panel into the short side panels but across the top edge. Tack into place.
Step 3 - Slide out the base and drill 2 holes in the panel you've just attached so it can be screwed into the wall.
Step 4 - Paint your rack and let it dry.
Step 5 - With the base still removed, mark where you want to put it, drill and attach to the wall.
Step 6 - Slide in the base panel.
