Any ideas on how to repurpose this small staircase

Rosalie HarrisonJulie M.Johnavallance82


I have the small staircase in the pictures below that was once part of a bunkb that my kids grew out of. It has 5 drawers for storage that are various sizes, it is sitting in my garage and is being used as a catch all. I would love to repurpose it and bring it back inside my home before it is ruined beyond repair.
Side view same on both sides

    Could you paint it and add hooks to one or both sides for coats and then use the drawers for shoes? Or you could paint it and use it as a creative book shelf and add painted murals or artwork on the sides.

    Plant Stand or Bookcase or Both all in one With a Picture or Mirror on side. OR
    For the Hall - Plain side put Coat Hooks -Hats, and Scarves on top - Shoes on steps.

    This would be a great entry/mudroom piece as suggested by others with hooks for hats, scarves and jackets on the large side and shoes/boots in/on the drawer side.
    Another idea is to paint the sidewall as a chalkboard. Store school supplies in the drawers.
    For your bedroom...lots of hooks to store jewelry. Drawers to store accessories.
    Still thinking about a good use in the kitchen?????
    I can't wait to see what you do with this!!!

    I would put caster wheels on it and use it in the kitchen because I am 5' tall and can't reach anything, I would use the drawers for dish towels, oven mitts, and/or spices. I would love one of these😀
