Found some really neat drawers that came out of dresser. Dresser is missing. Purchased 3 gorgeous drawers and need ideas

I found these beautiful drawers (no clean-up or touch up needed) perfect condition.

For some reason, I couldn't walk away. Just one of those pieces that screamed "take me home" So cheap I couldn't resist. The top two are the same but the bottom drawer is deeper. The photos show them stacked against my bedroom wall. These can be anything from storage to plant container. I really love the shabby chic and can see a plant in the top. Really....... need some ideas for support and decorating. Probably do second one full of magazines. Thanks for looking.

    I was thinking after I stare this picture. I was think Why not you put under the bed. Additional wood board and make a dresser into wood? Save $ instead of buy whole wood dresser under bed?

    I would add some support to the undersides, then buy or make some legs to the bottom. On one, add a hinged lid, and you can use it for a cute little writing desk. On the deepest one, just use short legs, add a hinged lid, and then put some covered foam

    I've seen drawers cut down and mounted on the wall as decorative shelves.

    I love the way you have them sitting on the floor. I would add wood inside the two bottom drawers to make them higher from each other and I would let each one sit just the way you have them pictured above, add plants to the top one and maybe a book, some

    Add some support inside each corner and put some nice turned wood legs then turn it over and use it as a table! I don't know what the bottom of the drawer looks like but if you need to add a wood top I would stain them a dark color and match them with

    I would put legs on each and cut them in graduated sizes, so each drawer (now table) will be a bit shorter... Just like nesting tables.Then paint the insides or put a pretty wallpaper inside. Once thats done, fill them with family trinkets, and place a

    Turn them upside down and make tables out of them buy wooden legs and sand restain or paint! You could also make deep shelves out of them.

    I Love the coffee table idea. I've seen it done before, and if you paint two of them and maybe replace the handles (only if you want to) and go to a flea market and find some old good things to put inside it, it would look beautiful. Either paint or use

    Not sure how old this post is but here is an idea; i could see them mounted (in a corner on cast iron wall brackets and use them to put your crystal in ,like wine glasses , antique cocktail shaker...essentially using it as a bar but not have it cluttered

    Can you use them under bathroom or kitchen cabinets as an under-cabinet drawer?
