Well for these drawers that was not the case. I hauled these things all the way to Birmingham when we moved, convinced I would find some purpose for them in our new home. Well, when decorating our "white shabby chic bedroom" I was struck with a genius (that is what I am calling it so just go with it) thought. I decided these old drawers would make awesome shabby chic shadow boxes/shelves to put over our matching dressers. I lined the back of the drawers with fabric (burlap for him and white eyelet for her), added some hanging hardware and some accessories and Ta-Dah! Awesome bedroom decor! I am totally in love with them and with the fact that I actually used some of my hoarded rubbish. Check out the pictures below and let me know what you think!
****disclaimer: much to my dismay the tops of our dressers have never been this clear again. ever.
So if you ever see some good rubbish that could be refashioned into decor go for it! Or at least send me a text and let me know where I can pick it up...
Until next time,
