Super idea! At flea markets and garage sales, so many times you see the top portion of a dining room hutch or the bookcase portion of a desk but there is no bottom available. This project would lend itself so well to those cast offs with a little sawing to adjust the proper and needed height, or even width if you are really handy! Great practical project!

Aww, that's really cute with the colors. I'm definitely stealing this idea.

Megan, I'm totally stealing this idea as well! This would be so easy to customize with the colors so it would fit in any room of your house and match your dcor. Can't wait to move in to our house so I can start projects like this one!
