There are a few ways of repurposing old drawers. THe first one is to use them as frames or shelves for small things. It’s very convenient for hallways as you can keep the keys, gloves, and a shoehorn there. You can also make artwork frames out of them.

A drawer or two can become a base for a coffee table. You might need a couple of caster wheels, a glass tabletop, and a coat of new paint for the conversion but in the end you might end up having a nice handmade storage-friendly coffee table.

A number of old drawers can be turned into a bookcase or fill up the old dresser. The latter can be filled with different drawers for a colorful unusual look.

Old drawers can be used separately or in a chest for planting herbs, flowers, and various other plants. They work great especially around the house or on a porch as they are both furnishings and planters. You can also bring them out into the garden if you wish to decorate it.

A drawer can also serve as a tray, a pet bed, a console table, and a chalkboard. Finally drawers can be used as storage units they are even out of chest. You can put them under the bed or wardrobe and pull them out whenever you need them.
