25+ Project Ideas for Repurposed Drawers

Wooden drawers- whether they come from a dresser, a sewing cabinet, a library card catalog, or something else entirely, are full of repurposing and upcycling potential. If you think about it, they’re a ready-built box or crate…just waiting to be refurbished in a new and unexpected way! I’ve repurposed drawers in a few projects already and surprise, surprise…I’ve got another project idea in the queue!Β 

I tend to find random, salvaged drawers at my local Habitat ReStores stores…and occasionally on the curb during trash day! And from organizers, to pet beds…to home decor…to new furniture pieces entirely, repurposed drawers are DEFINITELY one of my favorite things. I always gravitate towards wood pieces to repurpose, so drawers are a natural fit for me- paint them, deconstruct them, add/remove hardware, decoupage them…like cutting boards and picture frames, drawers are very much a blank slate that are ideal for repurposing and upcycling.

So, I’ve assembled a few of my favorite projects from upcycling bloggers like myself to inspire you to create your own drawer upcycle!

  1. I see at least two I want to do! Thank you for the inspiration. How about doing a cabinet door round up next? 😊

      Hahaha, you have a little psychic-ness happening! My Thursday project involves a cabinet door- and YES, I definitely plan to do a cabinet door round-up in the future. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰
