Do you have an old dresser that’s seen better days? Ever peruse yard sale selections and see random drawers just sitting there? Well, did you ever imagine what you could do with them?
If you’re crafty enough, there’s tons of great ways to reuse an old drawer to create super functional and stylish décor for your home. Just check out these ideas!
1) A Pillow Box
Those fancy pillows are not to be used for anything else but making your sofa or bed look pretty. Right?
So, when company comes over it’s nice to have a place to toss them. Claire over at Rustic Pig has a great idea to help you out.
2) Just the Front
Grace over at Design Sponge came up with a really unique way to reuse old drawer fronts. SO this idea works even for those unfortunate old drawers that have unsalvageable boxes. Spruce them up with paint, add some knobs, and you have yourself some unique hangers!
3) Upside Down Décor
Becky from Beyond the Picket Fence had a super cool idea to create actual shelf cabinets using her old drawers. If you can find one big enough, add a few dividers inside and then flip on its side. Voila! Instant shelving cabinet! Perfect for a hallway, porch, or bathroom.
4) Underneath It All
If you find yourself needing that extra bit of storage in your bedroom but simply have nowhere to stick a new dresser, consider the space under your bed! By painting and sticking a few shallow drawers together and adding castors on the bottom, you create the perfect under bed roll-out storage. Mindi from My Love 2 Create can show you how.
