30+ Upcycling Ideas for Dresser Drawers or Storage Drawers

Wooden drawers – no matter where they come from – are full of repurposing and upcycling potential. Whether they are from a vintage dresser, a sewing cabinet, a library card catalog, or something else entirely, there are endless shapes and sizes. And if you think about it, wooden drawers are a ready-built box or crate just waiting to be refurbished in a new and unexpected way!

I’m certainly no stranger to upcycling drawers, either. One of my favorite projects using drawers is my craft paint storage, which I use all the time.

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 and home decor, upcycled drawers are DEFINITELY one of my favorite things. I’m always amazed when people throw out drawers from old furniture or a kitchen remodel!

Since I always gravitate towards wood pieces to repurpose, drawers are a natural fit for me. You can paint them, deconstruct them, add/remove hardware, decoupage them. etc.

Just like cutting boards and picture frames, drawers are very much a blank slate that are ideal for repurposing and upcycling ideas.

So, I’ve assembled a few of my favorite upcycling ideas for drawers from upcycling bloggers like myself to inspire you to work with your own repurposed drawers!
