Do you have some old dresser drawers at home? Maybe you just want to create some unique storage bins or a creative garden. Well, in just a few steps you can add some life back into some old drawers and re-purpose them into something you will love and appreciate for years to come!
This project, while pretty easy, can get a bit lengthy, so be sure to head over to my blog to see the full tutorial with step-by-step pictures.
Step 1: Find some old drawers. We found these in the "free" pile on garage sale day
Step 2: Remove the hardware and sand the front
Step 3: Fill the holes with wood filler
Step 4: Get to creating! We used a spray paint on the inside and outside and then used a brush on the front along with different stencils.
I made a pepper garden in this one for the kids!
And how amazing is this one for pillow storage?

Be sure to head over to my blog to the remaining steps in creating your own Storage Bins from old dresser drawers!
