Last year we concluded 2017’s Decor Quick Tips on a high note. For those who can recall, it was the very fun idea of transforming old dresser drawers into quirky under-bed storage units. I have since stumbled upon so many clever DIY ideas on things to do with old dresser drawers – enough to keep us knee-deep in interesting tips for a good few months! So, without further ado, here is the latest playful tip in our “awesome stuff to do with old drawers” Decor Quick Tip miniseries…
#52 Have any old and unwanted dresser drawers gathering dust in the shed? Hold a sec before you toss it! Why not repurpose that old drawer into a quirky side table. All you have to do is attach some salvaged legs to the bottom of your drawer (even the folding legs of a TV tray would work). The style of your upcycled table will take cue from the drawer and legs you choose to use. Attach some tapering wooden cone legs for a Mid-century feel or use metal filing drawers for a more Industrial look. Give your drawer a fresh coat of paint or leave it natural or distressed if that is your chosen style. Choose a knob or handle that will complement your chosen table legs.
