Old dresser drawers can still be used, given new life as re-invented trendy home decor. Here’s a number of examples of how you might turn these seemingly useless objects into your next do it yourself project to spice up your home!
One illustrates how to use the drawers to hang photos on a wall and another how to turn a drawer on its side, and then add some wheels to the bottom to create a hip end-table. Place some legs on the bottom of a drawer and add some cushioning for the inside for a comfortable bed for a small pet to curl up on. Using a collection of drawers offers the opportunity to create a headboard with shelves, while using just one may be sufficient to offer a place for any knicknacks that may have a hard time finding a specific place within a home.
Adding four legs to the bottom of a drawer could potentially help add a new piece of furniture to a home. In this case, that could be an ottoman that merely requires putting the legs on the bottom before then placing a cushion of some sort within the drawer itself.
Using drawers for a lamp adornment, a wall-mounted planter, a flower pot or even a garden are also options. They can be used to hang earrings, add space under beds or create a dollhouse or bookshelf, or use the front panel for hooks.
