What to do with old drawers…..
I was very blessed recently to go through an old house that was built in 1916, and take out what I’d like to have because they were tearing it down. There was an old butler’s pantry in the house and there were some drawers in it that no one wanted, so I snatched them up. (I’ll show you what else I took out later)
See how large these drawers are! I got three of them.
Wanna see what I did with them?
First I purchased some of these little wheels from Lowes….
I flipped over the three drawers and installed the wheels on the bottom, one in each of the four corners of each drawer. (just look how well these drawers are made….out of solid wood too!)
I wanted to use the drawers this way under my son’s bed, but all three of them wouldn’t fit soooo…… I did something a little different…
I turned them lengthwise and just added knobs on the end….
I did paint them, I couldn’t stand it!
Here they are all lined up under my son’s bed now….
We completely eliminated the need for a dresser in his room with these drawers. This is a great idea for a small room, whether it be for clothes or toys! You could use any size drawers that you happen to find!
My son loves the convenience of having his clothes on wheels and not having a dresser in his room!
Have a blessed day!
