Great idea Johnnie! My parents actually had me sleep in their dresser drawer when I was an infant… not exactly craft material!

Wishing you and yours a VERY Happy, Healthy and Creative 2013! xo

I purchased a few old drawers from an antique dealer and we put rollers on the bottom of the two large ones and use the to store shoes under the bench in our mud room. The smaller drawers have dividers and work well for sorting lost socks and other assorted items in the laundry room. The are the perfect size to sit above my washer and dryer tucked neatly below the shelves to be pulled out when needed. Their vintage quality and appearance add to the decor of the room.

Greta ideas! I remembered at least two more. You can put a mirror at the bottom of the drawer and use it in you bathroom (with shelr and everything) or you can hang it (also flat on the wall) with a big enough frame and two hinges as a cabinet door. ;)
Thanks for sharing!
