If you are someone who uses Pinterest, you have probably stumbled across a number of projects where people do really cool stuff with old furniture. I mean really super creative stuff that you wish you had thought of doing. Usually, you find these projects after have (unfortunately) you disposed of some random, seemingly useless piece of furniture. My latest Pinterest obsession is DIY recycled furniture projects using old drawers.
Whether you have a full dresser or chest of drawers or a small nightstand with a single drawer, there are some amazing ideas out there to repurpose the piece. Once you remove the drawers for a project, there are a lot of great ideas for what to do with the rest of the piece. But that’s a totally different discussion.
