I’ve had a busy week helping some friends with their move and conditioning their new apartment. They got rid of several things and offered me some, like these metallic drawers they had from an Ikea closet. They are huge and had no idea what to do with them, but they were in great condition so I took them anyway.
As little Miss S loves to draw and I just needed a place to show all her art, I thought I could use them for that purpose.
Now I also have a place to hang my project sketches or prints I like.
I can add as many strings as I want. I hope it doesn’t finish too much crowded!
I also added some of my favorite flowers, so every time I come into the room I see them
And it’s as simple as this! I hope you like it as much as we do!

This is such a great idea Pili!!! Love it!!
We really love it, Keri!!
These used to be drawers look awesome on the wall Pili!
I like it too, Katrin!! At least no more big drawers rolling over the floor!
What an awesome idea! They make a great place to display art work, notes, etc. love the little flower pot. Adds a splash of color.
The flower pot is what I love most! I still can see it through all the papers hanging there…
Thanks for stopping by, Linda!
Pili, This is a great repurpose. I especially love how you added the flower on the bottom. t gives a happy note to the whole piece.
Yes, I love the color of the flowers and the copper color of the flower pot. They are not real flowers though, they always die… I forget to water them. But not these 😉
This is such a neat idea! I love it!
Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J. Happy Thanksgiving!
Glad you stopped by, Jess!
This is such a cute idea- I love the the sides create a perfect little shelf!
Yes, I’m thinking what else I can place on the other shelf… Thanks for visiting, Jessy!
This is such a cute idea! you could attach a tray or dish on the bottom for keys and pocket junk and put it near the front door – showcase the kids art and useful 🙂 love it!! Thanks for sharing
Hi, Charlotte! Sadly I don’t have room for them near my front door, but that would be a great idea too.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Hi, Pili! I love that you are using them for a shelf as well as vertical displays. Awesome re-use of these clunky huge things!
Hi, Michelle! I need to re-use everything!! and these are really huge
Thanks for visiting!
I love wire baskets! These are just perfect hanging the wall showcasing the artwork. Thanks so much for sharing your idea at Vintage Inspiration Party.
These are huge but the positive thing is that more artwork can be displayed! I appreciate you stopping by, have a happy Thanksgiving!
What a great idea. These are stylish and perfect for hanging things you love or things to work on. I bet your daughters love that their artwork is displayed so handsomely! Love this!
Yes, they do! I think I need more string and clothespins! The more room I have, the more room I need!
Thanks for stopping by, Nikki!
Oh I love this idea! We currently don’t live in a home that this would match/look very good :/ But we’ll be moving soon and dont have remodeling plans complete! Thank you for sharing! I certainly see how this could be amazing for, as shown, displaying kids’ artwork and prized possessions when the fridge is a tad too full 😉 Thank you! I’ll pin it on my remodeling boards on FB too because it really is a wonderful idea!
Ill have to look into ways of finding some old metal shelving units. Maybe habitat will work. Hey – another post? Any suggestions for findng items like this to repurpose….. or how to tell if, once found, it is worth it?
Thank you so much, Kaitlyn!! I really appreciate your comment and ideas for another post. I will think about that although living outside the US can be a bit challenging. I get most of my stuff from my favorite flea market, and friends also give me some!
They look really good Pili. So simple but once you’ve dressed them up, they look really effective.

It’s really effective, Sally. No more wondering where I placed that piece of paper with a new idea

Thank you so much for letting me know and for the feature, Holly! Enjoy your weekend!
A simple change of use yet still genius! Thanks for sharing with #frifree4all
It’s really useful, Hayley!! No more walking around looking where I left that paper
