    Use the bottom drawer as a template. Cut two more drawers the exact size, tack them into place and paint to match. Cute color scheme on that dresser!

    If you don't need the front, which it doesn't look like you do, get tension rods and hang fabric from it with an opening in the middle like curtains so that you can open them to get to the items you want out of the drawer. Just flip the material up on top of the dresser when you want to open a drawer. See what you can find that takes in the three colors that you have painted the dresser with or a combination of the colors. You could use sheets or whatever you want.

    Go to Lowes or Home depot with one draw. Have the guy tell you which wood to use and then have him cut it to the size of the other drawers. You can then tack the facing on the cross bars. paint and you have a new dresser.

    Dee's idea is best but have you thought of baskets to fill up the space? Should be able to find right size.

    Hi there, see if you can find some pretty baskets to use instead of drawers.
