Three Creatively Ambitious Drawer Ideas!


Drawers are very versatile and can be used any many different ways to enhance your home decor.

I want to share with you three very different looks with one freshly painted white drawer that I created.


Now to appreciate this drawer, it’s origins, how I made it and a tutorial for the magazine rack below…



First up… Functional Creative Magazine Drawer 


Next…  Rosy Cottage Style Drawer blog4

And finally…  Artistic Shabby Chic Drawer


So tell me… which one do you like the best?


Thanks for Stoppin’ By!

  1. Oh my! Choices. Hmmm. Love the license plate, adore the painting, but I am head-over-heels in love with those large blooms in the silver buckets! All three are amazing and I am definitely going to be using this inspiration IF I ever get my living/dining room painted.

  2. I love number 3! What a great idea. But they are all fantastic uses for a drawer.

    I was just looking around wishing I had an old unused drawer to make into something.

  3. Ok, not only are they all awesome, you come up with THREE. Being a true blue junker, the license plate one is speaking to me, but honestly, I just love them all!

    I featured the rose one to pretty up my blog face. :)


  4. You rock! What great ideas! I love all three!

  5. Very cool ideas! Love all 3! My favorite is the license plate, because it's just different.
    Thanks for sharing! I'm visiting from Funky Junk.

  6. I like them all but am partial to the license plate mag holder. Just cuz its so different! I have a Wyoming truck plate my son gave to me and my hubby when we got engaged. Now that could inspire me to use it in a new waym instead of hanging over our westerned themed tv room!

  7. I like them all, but am partial to the feminie flowers in picture 2. The tin cans along with the pretty roses is a great combo for me.

    You are one creative TN gal.

  8. I love the second one with the flowers, however i'd definitely hang the painting one in my living room or bathroom. Awesome ideas!

  9. Oh, I can't decide. I will have to have all 3! Congrats on the highlight over at FJI, I came over to see the rest.
    Thanks for sharing all these great looks!

  10. Wow, I like all 3... I guess if I had to pick I'd go with the first one because I have so many mags and never enough places to put them.... function won this time :)

  11. Love them all, especially the second one. The license plate is pretty cool though, and useful too. So creative!!

  12. What amazing ideas to use a drawer for! I love the one with the flowers in the best! Thanks for sharing. Happy WW!

  13. Hi Kendra,
    Loved your very creative ideas for the drawers...Now that you have inspired me I need to get my hands on a drawer :-) Have a wonderful day.

  15. simply lovely!! loving the one with the cans and flowers in it.....very clever girl you are!

  16. What great ideas. I love the magazine holder. Well actually I love them all.

  17. Great inspirational ideas-I got a few drawers laying around my barn-I'll have to see what I can come up with-Happy White Wednesday!

  18. Just beautiful! Love them all!!! I just used a drawer as a display shelf in my son's room, but it's not nearly as pretty... Maybe I should reclaim it! ;-)
    Will be back to look around your lovely site a lot more!

  19. Wow, so creative! I like all three looks, but maybe the magazine rack one best. I'm your newest follower!

  20. ooh la the magazine rack. that license plate makes it really cool! my first time on your it!

  21. Very creative. I think I like the flowers the best.

  22. I like them all! Do we have to choose?
