Upcycled shelves into desk organiser

Lovely BM and I have quite a few Ikea DVD towers in our house and we've ended up with quite a glut of spare shelves. So i thought id try and make something out of them.

And this is what i came up with - a desk orgainser!

I just glued the shelves together with 'No More Nails'. First the bottom, sides and middle divider

Then the back

And finally added some cut down shelves as more dividers

As you can see from the first 2 pics and the left side of the pic above the front edges are just exposed wood pulp. I didnt like this so i got some laminate iron on strip samples from ebay, cut them to size and added them to the front edges.

It looks so much more finished that way.

So a pretty handy desk orgainser for lovely BM and all i spent was £1 on the the laminate edging strips. Dont you just love upcycling!
