You should never underestimate a good piece of used furniture, much less if we’re talking about drawers.

It is easy to think that drawers only serve their original purpose, but you can truthfully reuse them in many ways, both whole or taken apart.

One possibility, for instance, is to repaint these drawers and change the pulls to create a new organization system in an open cabinet. Another option could be to take the wood apart and apply it to a new project. You can even save the knobs and pulls, which may come in handy in a future project.

A drawer isn’t just a drawer – is a divider, a box and many other things. So unless they are literally falling apart, you should never throw your old drawers out.

If the arguments above didn’t convince you, the following gallery will surely show you why it is important to keep your drawers. Please have a look at these DIY Furniture Ideas Using Old Drawers.
