Drawers get used for the most creative things these days, and we'll happily add this to the list. When the whole chest of drawers poses too much of a challenge to restore, the weathered patina and intricate hardware make a beautiful box for an assortment of houseplants.

This is great idea we'll take with us to our local salvage store, but if you're in love with this actual piece (and we do like the color), it's being sold on Etsy.
