I would like to know, what projects I can do with old dresser drawers?

Add feet and a cushion for a foot rest or a pet bed.
Love the pet bed idea!

I’m going to make planters out of mine!!!
Boy oh boy that's a loaded question...lol. I like doing this with nicer drawer fronts. Sometimes I make shelving from the rest or I've made hanging closet space savers. Also can use the bed of the drawer as a flower learning box kids... Line the inside with heavy painters plastic, glue a plexi glass front on where the drawer front was...drill a few small drain holes in the bottom... Fill with dirt, children will be able to see how rooting of the plant grows.
If you wanted to do something like planters, I'd make sure they're weather sealed well or they may start rotting over time.

Hello. Are they small- narrow enough to use as under the bed drawers? That’s the first use I would first think of. I’m always looking for a place to store cleaning supplies towels and linens.
Add casters and use as underbed storage. Make holes in base for drainage, add little legs and use as Planters. Cut down the depth and make window boxes. Build them up in a pattern and fix together and use as bookcase or what not! Have fun....
