Dressers. They are awesome when you need them. Almost necessary when you need them. But, when you don’t need them, they are the worst. Huge and bulky, you can’t just store it away somewhere. You have to either give it to someone (there’s almost always someone who needs a dresser) or donate it. Maybe you could sell it on Craigs List. But what if you don’t want to go through all that? Or what if your dresser is so beat that nobody wants it?
Well, here are some ideas for what you can do with dresser drawers. So, at least half of your problem is solved, right?
1. Make it decorative

There is not much that I love more than when my crafting projects end up in the garden. This drawer garden bed idea would be cute for Cecilia’s little garden. Also, The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking might become one of my favorite blogs. Pinterest might be addicting (bad) but it does get you see what other people are doing, and to check out their blogs.
This is probably my favorite thing about Thrifty Thursdays and Fridays are for Favorites, they allow me some time to check out new blogs. I try to not use big companies when I look for tutorials, so the people who are doing it all on their own can get some recognition. Now, the next step would be to actually follow the tutorials. But that’s a whole other story.
