Quick Tip #54: Old Drawer Wall Storage

Let’s continue with our “cool things to do with old drawers” Decor Quick Tip miniseries, shall we? As mentioned previously, this is but one of the many clever and quirky dresser drawer DIY ideas we’ve stumbled across. We are really enjoying this playful series! Be sure to check out the previous drawer tips, “Old Drawer Turned Table”, “Under Bed Drawer Storage” and “Old Drawer Turned Tray” … just in case you missed it.

#54  Looking for a fun way to add additional storage to your space? Why not repurpose an old and unwanted dresser drawer into upcycled wall storage. Attach the bottom of your drawer (or a grouping of drawers) to the wall to create a quirky and eye-catching wall shelf. You can use it to display decorative items or as a catch-all storage for everyday things like keys and letters. To further enhance your drawer’s appeal give it a lick of bright paint and apply an attractive wallpaper or wrapping paper to the inside of the drawer bottom. For a slightly different effect, attach the back of a drawer to the wall to create a cantilevered wall box – drawer front and handle facing out. Use it to store and display books, plants, or even toiletries and towels in the bathroom. It can even serve as quirky bedside storage (as shown above).
