Awesome Remodels 03.11.14

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 think they look really cool hanging on the wall for shelves. They make really good under bed storage too...but these are way to pretty for that! If they are all the same size...you could build a custom book shelf just especially for them! :)

  • If you are a crafter or sewer you could put different items pertaining to one project in each drawer, then tote the drawer to your work area to start your project, when done load you items back and stack with the other two. Might make incredibly sweet
  • I like the idea of using them for storage and shelving. You could put hinged covers on the drawers so that they could be used for storage and the cover will act as a shelf for displays. They could be hung as floating shelves on the wall.

    Build a frame for the bottom of the drawer. Find some frenchy looking legs (Home Depot), attach them to the frame, paint to match the drawer, purchase foam and upholster for a cute, cute bench!! I've been looking for drawers to do this exact thing! Be
