You know I love to upcycle things, and last week I found two drawers. One of them is quite big and the other is small. The small one is holding some of my craft supplies, but I was wondering what to do with the bigger one. So I headed over the internet to get some ideas and I found quite a lot of good ones and I want to share them with you.
1. As a storage box.
2. As jewelry holder
3. As pot and flower holder

Hi, Heather! Yes, that one is so original, I would have never thought using a drawer for that…

Love these ideas! I once took a drawer and made a magazine rack to go next to our bed. My husband reads a lot of magazines!

You’re very welcome, Sue! Happy to party with you again this week
What great ideas for re-using an old or new drawer! You are so very creative! I am so impressed with all the different ways to use them! I really like the shelf ladder, it doesn’t take up much room and would be perfect for a bathroom! Thanks for sharing!
Hi, Tricia! I love re-using or re-purposing things we have at home. I think the shelf ladder is great too.

Kaye, thanks so much for stopping by and your kind comments. There are so many different ways to repurpose unused drawers or things in general… I’m amazed on how much people go green 🙂
I wanted to pick one or two as my favorite to comment about, but it’s impossible.
With creativity, one can do really nice things.

Such cute ideas.
Thanks, Sarah! And welcome to my crazy world!
What a fantastic collection. I particularly like the lamp that has been made out of draws. It’s been done in such a clever way.

Yes, the lamp is gorgeous. I tried to find the source so hard but I had no luck, what a shame…
Thanks for stopping by, Sally!

I’m so honored to see my jewelry drawer included with your wonderful round-up, Pili. Thanks so much!
My pleasure, Laurel!! It’s so lovely! I’m sure it will inspire a lot of people to make their own.
Thanks for stopping by!
Great idea. It’s customary in my home to remove shelves to lighten the weight of an armoire or chest of drawers that’s on it’s way out. Now I know what to do with the drawers!
One question: Have you ever tried similar projects with wooden wine crates? They work well for planters and shelving options and give a chateau-chic accent to the decor.
If your looking for original wine boxes or crates for future decorative projects visit Winepine
Hi! Yes, wine crates are wonderful for crafts projects as well. I’ve used them several times, but I still need to set up the post to show them.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Love you wine crates!
This is a great round-up! I LOVE the creativity seen here! I’m featuring this round-up at the Talented Tuesday party on my page. I hope you’ll stop by and say hi!
Lindi, thanks so much for stopping by and featuring my post!! So excited! Of course I will stop by!
Wow, people are so creative! Such clever ideas that look great! Thanks for sharing your list with us at Talented Tuesday.
Yes, they surprise me all the time! I found this week two drawers, let’s see what I do wih them
This collection is mad crazy, I love it. Just wanted to stop in and tell you it will be featured over on our Friday party. And I will so be trying that jewelry holder, mine is a mess on one of those 7.99 holders that supposed to help keep you organized… Thanks for sharing 🙂
Hi, Amanda! Many thanks for the feature and for letting me know! Love you like the collection, there are really creative minds out there. If you want to make a jewelry holder you can check mine which is so simple… https://sweethings.net/jewelry-holder/

Thanks, Mimi! Love to be able to inspire others re-using their drawers instead of getting rid of them
Love this! I’ve got a couple drawers too cute to throw away just sitting around, waiting for a use. Just pinned all this inspiration! 🙂 Stopping by from #LFEO!
