Dollar Store Drawer Organizer

5 Materials
1 Hour

This project is an easy way to make your home decor look more upscale in an easy way. I picked up these little plastic drawers today, but I wanted to make them look a little less cheap. I decided to use some nice wood and give them more of an upscale look.

This is what I started with.

I first measured the height and width of the drawers, and cut the boards to fit around them. I then nailed the bottom piece to the two side panels.

I then made sure the drawers fit inside nicely.

Then I measured the top piece, and cut that out as well.

You can keep the wood look, and perhaps add a nice varnish. I decided to paint it, so I spray painted it all over with oiled rub bronze and lightly sanded the edges. This gives it that nice distressed look that I love.

And that's it, plastic drawers with a new look. Just a small upgrade!

I just love how easy this was and how adorable it came out! All for under $5!
