What to do with a bunch of old dresser drawers??
I also made some display areas for all the kiddo artwork and photographs that have been piling up. The first was a frame (from someone's trash). It got a coat of paint that was leftover from the dining room, so it ties the rooms together a bit and then I strung wire in a grid, with curtain clips strung along it and attached the wire to the back with pushpins. You could easily add more clips and more photos!
...and finally...the answer to my posted question...what should I do with a bunch of old dresser drawers? I found 8 of them in the trash with no dresser frame, so I painted them (again...same gallon of oops paint and the leftover wall color so it looks like the drawers blend into the wall) and hung them as artwork display cases.
The drawers are hanging over a little "desk I made for the boys. I found a cheap table and painted it my favorite brown/grey oops paint and then laid a $6 metal panel from IKEA's clearance section on top. It makes a long magnetic tabletop for them. I also made a second table near our entry with two telephone tables and another metal piece from IKEA. I have no idea what these were actually intended for...I do like that you can see the "as is" written on the bottom when I take a photo like this:
