We’ve got a really exciting post for you today, folks! Step right up and see the suspense filled transformation of a dysfunctional drawer system into a fully functioning shelving unit! And all for $8!
When we bought the LH, the kitchen had already been remodeled with Ikea cabinetry. There was only one issue. Not to point fingers, but…

Stay tuned folks for the exciting conclusion of Shelf Life!
