The old refrigerator drawers are perfect for storing fruits and veggies. Now isn’t that a surprise.

Y’all know how much I like junk (little bit) and sometimes I just can’t find the exact piece I’m looking for. This happened to be the case with my latest project. I needed a large storage unit for my kitchen to function as an open pantry. It had to be a specific size, have large shelves and lots of storage capacity. And most importantly…LOOK OLD. What are the odds of finding that?
So after years of searching with no luck I decided to BUILD IT MYSELF! I compiled a list of materials and headed to a lumberyard that sells reclaimed wood. It’s constructed of 2x4’s, plywood, 1x12’s and lots of miscellaneous pine boards. The entire piece is painted white with black accents and then the most important part…MADE TO LOOK OLD. I let this baby have it good. It took one major beating after another until I achieved the perfect time-worn finish.
