In the spirit of upcycling and repurposing, we find it a refreshing choice to use castaway drawers as vertical storage...A typeset drawer is the easiest way to display small mementos and tokens from travels. Rare coins, a decorative pen or a ticket from an event fit perfectly in the drawers teeny compartments. We've also seen a vintage typeset drawer used for storing art supplies in a craft room. Or group a handful of drawers together to make a collage of vertical storage. For rustic charm, you can leave them as-is or DIY the grouping with a coat of fresh paint and decorative paper.
