Answered
The old VHS stackable storage cabinets are all over garage sales, thrift shops, etc these days. I saw one repurposed into something wonderful and can no longer find it. I am looking for ideas to repurpose these into something useful for today's world. Any ideas, suggestions, or projects you have done will be most appreciated.

    I could see it being used as the base for a kuerig coffee machine. You could put the coffee pods in the drawers. I would decoupage it with kitchen / coffee related images.

    Stack and make night stand. Paint or paper to decorate. Add a top and legs. Craft room storage. Garage organizer. Under bathroom vanity for organizing.

    I saw a post here on Hometalk that I pinned from CasaWatkins.blogspot where she painted the whole think white, then added colorful stripes, and used it for storage of small craft paint bottles. Very cute. I will definitely be looking for an old VHS storage box to try it myself.

    Thank you so much everyone! And thank you Becky for the link. Yep, this was what I had seen before and couldn't find again. Not sure what I'm going to use this for but was thinking it could at least get started on paint, etc. Allinthefamilysingers, if you could post a pic of that I would LOVE to see it! Sounds like a great idea! Please share.

    I volunteer at a local thrift shop and took the drawers out of one of these. We keep our sign in book (a 2” binder) in the cubby and telephone sits on the top. Even with 30+ people using it, the book always gets put right back into its place, and doesn’t get buried under other things that accumulate on the counter. You could do the same use it to elevate anything (printer, monitor, lamp, etc.) and have a place for books or paper underneath.

    Use it to hide cash in the garage...put money in it & label it oily rags. A - no one looks for cassettes B - no one wants oily rags

    I found a cool web site Michelle James Designs, used a few of them and an old stereo cabinet to make a storage/craft cabinet. She painted them white. I want to do that myself.
