Don’t throw that old dresser away just yet! You may not have need for the whole piece, but here are 10 brilliant ways to repurpose old dresser drawers:
Add legs to the bottom of dresser drawers and repaint the wood to make a cute storage box. It’s perfect at the end of a bed! Two It Yourself gives the full DIY here.
Take the storage box one step further and add a removable cushion to make a storage ottoman. We used to keep our shoes in our storage ottoman when we had one. It made it so easy to just grab and go! Tutorial here.
I’m always looking for great ways to organize the space under beds! What a neat idea this is to use old dresser drawers as underbed drawers instead! The wheels on the bottom make it easy to pull them right out. Find the creative idea on Olive and Love.
Jewelry boxes are always nice to have to keep your bling organized, but it seems like they’re always too small. Repurpose an old drawer into a wall shelf and jewelry organizer and you won’t have to worry about running out of storage space again. Michaels always has some fun knobs and hooks to choose from.

Opt for a vintage style wall desk or drink station as a way to repurpose your old dresser drawers. This takes me back to many happy memories in my grandmother’s home.
