5 Ways to Repurpose a Drawer

Those lonely drawers without a dresser that you spot at curbside trash piles and garage sales? Don’t pass them by! Drawers are actually super easy to repurpose and there’s a lot that you can do with all or part of a drawer. Drawer fronts typically have some type of beveled or raised edge, which adds way more character to a project than a regular board. And drawer boxes are exactly that–a ready made box! Check out some of the neat ways you can transform old drawers with these 5 Ways to Repurpose a Drawer.

I am so excited about this project.  This tray is perfect for a coffee table because it has a little drawer to hide things like magazines and remote controls.  Another idea is to put school supplies in it for a homework station or have it on a kitchen table and store things like extra silverware and napkins.  It is rather heavy so it won’t really work for a serving tray.  But it is nice to have where it will stay in place and be able to serve as some hiding place organization.

I inherited a secretary desk from my grandma when my family moved her into a nursing home.  My mom remembers it being in her house when they were growing up.  So obviously I remembered it being in grandma’s house when I used to visit.  I feel incredibly lucky to have it in my house now since it is a piece of my family’s history but made one small change to make it perfect.
