A New Use for Antique Drawers

Drawers reused 4 days ago
When I came across a dresser that was falling apart, I decide to save the drawers and turn them into something useful! Who knew old drawers could be beautiful all on their own?

This was such an easy project! We bought several "feet" from our local hardware store. I stained them and we screwed them into the bottom of the drawers. Next, I painted them and added a fun "Love" stencil to the front.

Now they make for the perfect placde to hold your pillows, magazines, or even your dog! :)

    The drawers would also make a great dog bed.

    I just think how easy this looks and if I can find old stuff that is not particle board!

    With "Love" on the front, I would put all of the cards and notes my husband has given to me inside of there. Married 35 years now, you tend to gather a lot of them. This would be a very special drawer for sure! Wouldn't have to keep them closed up where

    I put rollers on one and store toys under the bed for when grandkids come over.

    I love old drawers and have rescued a bunch of them but haven't really gotten into making something with them. Best wishes.
