Trash to Treasure

Drawers Repurposed

If you have been thinking what to do with a old dresser, or the drawers….I have a wonderful treat for you! I have gathered some ideas on the internet that I think will inspire you!

You have a old dresser, you really have no use for. Why not remove the drawers and use them around the house. Here are some ideas for them:

Bathroom Wall Shelving

Paint, add wallpaper to the back. Then make 2 shelves inside the drawer…isn’t this pretty!!!

Book Storage

How about cutting the drawer down in length, painting, and use as storage for books

Pet Bed

and thinking of more kitty fun….and I know a lot of you have kitties…

For this next one…purchase some legs at your local home improvement store. Make a topper with a piece of wood that fits on top of your dresser. Add some foam to the wood with glue, then wrap with your fabric…..beautiful!

How about a place to put some of those pillows, or blankets….How cute is this in a childs room to hold the stuff animals or toys. All you need is 4 legs, paint and some contact paper, or wallpaper. I have seen and used this contact paper below in a couple of my projects. Walmart carries it.

This next one is so pretty. This fabulous jewelry display/DIY message center from PlumDoodles uses both a drawer and piece of gutter guard!

    1. You know those dog beds that are rectangular with no sides….do you have one of those that fits your doggies size? If so…compare it with the drawer. Also, if it fits in the drawer….you’re over halfway there. You can personalize the drawer any way you want. Let me know if you have any questions. I think the bigger drawers would work fine.

  1. How cool, especially kitties in drawers! I did something quite the opposite years ago – got an old large jewelry chest at a thrift shop and re-purposed it as a night table with drawers. I’ll take a picture and send you.

  2. Great ideas! I saw the very first one on Pinterest yesterday and thought it was pretty neat. I also like the pet bed idea, but I don’t think there’s a drawer big enough to make a bed for my daughter’s Cain Corso. 😀
