A New Use for Antique Drawers

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! :)

    Love this idea. Castors on the bottom too sounds good. I have some smaller drawers left over from a project I didn't get around to, so your idea has got me thinking of many ideas on what to use my drawers for. Love the pillows in your first pic, where

    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
