  1. What a great way to repurpose a generic, boxy shelf! Love it!

  2. How darling this is. I love that you thought way outside the box here and cut that puppy in two!! Beautiful job and great tutorial!!!

  3. Karen!! I think this is my all time favorite transformation yet! I would never have picked that bookshelf up and now it looks amazing. You are the transformation Queen, my friend! Pinning and sharing! XO

      Thank you so much for the Pins and Share and Christy! I still have one half to use, have to put my thinking cap on for what to do with the other half!

  4. It turned out great! I would of never thought of cutting in half! Great job! pinning!

  5. This is INCREDIBLE!!! We have a cheap-o store bought island that I don’t like at all. This looks amazing!

    Fabulous!
    Great minds think alike. When I first seen your bookshelf, I thought about the same thing if it where mine for me to use in my craft room.

  8. Oh I love this and it reminds me of the bathroom cabinet you commented on today on my blog. Great minds think alike! There’s nothing like paint and casters to turn trash into great storage!

    I love this idea! This may be a stupid question but where did you get the reclaimed wood for the top?

    • GTC says:

      Shelley, there are no Stupid Questions around here! I get it from a variety of sources, the best way to find some might be to just check your local Craig’s list under Free. Often people have taken down their fences, or construction projects with a lot of wood leftover and don’t want to haul it to the dump. Other than that, construction sites where they are throwing it out is great too.

  10. Oh my gosh… are you KIDDING me?! I would have never picked up that bookcase but you just changed my mind! I want one for my workshop! Featuring you in this weekend’s Party Junk. Thanks for linking up! 🙂

  11. Hi Karen, I absolutely love your makeover! I’d love to feature it on my 2nd site, DIY Furniture Makeovers (http://diyfurnituremakeovers.com) if that’s alright. I’d share one before photo, one after photo, and a brief description with a link back. Let me know what you think. Thank you!
