Yesterday we talked about dressers with missing drawers and how they can be turned into a beautiful display piece.  What about if your dresser falls apart but you still have decent drawers?  Or maybe you come across a few spare drawers at a yard sale…maybe you even REMOVED a drawer from a perfectly good dresser so you could show of grandma’s quilts?

A few weeks ago we priced medicine cabinets for our boys bathroom–the cheapest one I found was $79.  I’m not paying that~I love the idea of using a drawer on the wall instead of a mass produced cabinet.  I even saw some drawers while I was at the dump today.

Here are a few other  ideas of clever ways to use those drawers around your home…

Something tells me that the people who did these projects didn’t go out and buy a new dresser and then take out the drawers so they could create these fun solutions.  My guess is that they had a spare drawer or three laying around and then figured out how to solve a problem using their extra drawers as the solution.

Is there a problem area in your home?

What solutions do you have buried in the attic and stacked in the garage?
