What to do with dresser drawers?

I have about twelve dresser drawers that I picked up from the curb. I want to do something with them, some don't have bottoms. They are in great shape. No knobs. Any ideas would be great.

    I like to use dresser drawers for wallmounted shelves, especially outdoors and in my shed.

    Find an old window attach to top of drawer add legs and you have yourself a cute little side table. Pintrest is a great resource for ideas.

    Make a fairy garden with it. Put some miniature grass in it, put a clothes line with something you would find in a drawer. Theme it with tiny undies or linens. Make a wicker laundry basket with some twigs. Add a mini fence with a farm animal and you got yourself a farm house vignette.

    I'm still thinking about this one, probably because I'm so jealous. Anyway, with that many drawers I'd want to put them on both sides of a window as "built-in" shelving.

    I've seen them done up as exterior window boxes and screwed into the exterior wall. Also seen as bedside tables or on a small wall as a little niche and for these last two just screw into interior wall. Jann
