Even the best furniture eventually reaches the end of its life, but usually, it doesn't all die at once. That rickety desk might have perfectly good drawers that could still be used, or those drawers you're ripping out to make way for the kitchen remodel could work just fine. Unfortunately, they don't really fit in anywhere...or do they? I was astounded when I took a look at Hometalk this week and saw that it is definitely possible to teach an old drawer new tricks: and then some.
Jeanette turned an old drawer into a tray, which is a totally logical use. In this case she's using it to display items, but you could totally bring someone breakfast in bed, show off a jewelry collection, or do something else entirely with your drawer tray. Best yet, this particular adaptation requires very few DIY skills, which is good for hamhanded people like me. (Jeanette, unlike me, knows her way around a hammer.)
