Repurposing Old Drawers

Part of having a “green” lifestyle is recycling and reusing, and not just in the way of saving glass and paper. One of my pastimes is finding a new purpose for an old piece of furniture. Sometimes I refinish and repaint them a bright color to use as an accent piece and other times I leave them in their natural state. Either way, I enjoy visualizing the use of an old treasure.

In some cases, pieces of an item are more valuable than the actual piece itself. For instance, there are a lot of practical and functional ways to repurpose drawers of a dresser or cabinet. Here are some really interesting way to use drawers in a new and stylish way.
