Hi There Here's how you can get the most out of your home & garden social network: Go home

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

24 hours ago
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.

    When I first saw the last photo I thought you attached them to the wall and made shelves..I think they would be good storage -spaced & attached to the wall.

    Sherry R I would paint them, add some small rollers on the bottom, and use them for under the bed storage for my shoes, or out of season sweaters in the summer.

    The drawers are beautiful. I have a sideboard that needs some of the handles replaced, do you have a source for these era of drawer handles?

      Jeannie Andrews Google "Restoration Hardware". There are several catalogs that offer "past era" hardware. Good luck!

      Jeannie Andrews For authentic (and not reproduction) check Craigslist, eBay and Habitat for Humanities' ReStore. Like me, I have a TON of old hardware and wish I could find buyers for it!

    Easily used for a coffee table. Get legs and use the inside for treasures and top with a piece of oversized glass. Oh and line the drawer with vintage wallpaper.

    Sherry R depending on how ambitious you are these drawers could be turned into a kitchen island of drawers, move-able with casters installed. Home Depot has large glued up pine tops/sides that

    Perhaps you could put a hinged top and legs on them, like a writing desk.

    A neighbor just gave me a drawer on casters for under bed storage. It was too tall so I took off the casters and used felt floor protector pads, six of them. Slides beautifully. I have hardwoods. If you have carpet you can get 'silicone' type round discs

    Wish I had them. I would use the deeper one as the middle section turned so the handles would hang down. Secure each of the others to the sides of the big drawer matching their back ends to the sides of the big drawer. Add a cleat across all three so

    I would love them for storage under my bed. Put castors on them and make them easy to pull out and push back. How wonderful they are.

    I've seen people use drawer fronts to hand on the wall to hang jewelry and scarves on, after they've added really cool knobs
