We make frequent trips to our local Re-Store and one of the things that rarely sees any reuse-love is the sad stack of drawers from discarded dressers or side tables that have gone the way of the dodo. This simple idea puts them to use and with a little creativity you could make a cool customized doll house for just a few bucks!

We spotted this great project by Nice Girl Notes on Dollar Store Crafts. Starting with a pair of drawers, a few pieces of wood were glued in place and paper was applied and sealed with Mod Podge. The whole project was done for very little money and is something that any family could put together for their child, no matter how big of crafter you claim to be.

In addition you could change out the hardware on top of the drawers to help make the unit easier for little hands to carry, or add a hinge on one side, allowing the unit to open and close (instead of the drawers sitting back to back), to keep little furniture pieces securely inside.
