Trash to Treasure: Old Drawers

Sasha Andreev shows Joan Steffend some great ideas for repurposing old junk drawers.

A frame is hinged onto a drawer and turned into a lightbox. A simple light kit is threaded in from behind to illuminate the box. A computer-generated photo is printed on vellum paper and then adhered to the frame.

Wall Shelves

A collection of junk drawers found at a salvage yard are screwed together and painted to create a unique shelving unit.

Display Case

A salvaged index drawer from a card catalog gets transformed into a tabletop display case. The drawer is lined with mirrors, making it perfect for displaying crystal or small knickknacks.
