Marilyn Caylor 2/14/2017
Plastic drawers are an organizer's dream come true. Sure, they're great for storing the miscellaneous odds and ends that you want to keep out of sight, but these drawers are a goldmine when you actually put them to good use!
Professional Makeup Counter
If you're a fan of makeup, then you'll love this idea! Acrylic makeup storage containers are expensive, especially if you have a lot of mascara and lipstick that you want to keep organized. However, if you use inexpensive plastic drawers, then you'll have plenty of money leftover to buy more makeup! Just use metallic gold spray paint from the craft store to spruce up the plastic part, and you'll have a gorgeous makeup counter in no time.
Perfect For A Toy Room (Or Closet)
Kids sometimes need a little bit of help when it comes to organizing their toys and playthings. A plastic drawer is the perfect solution! These drawers fit perfectly into the corner, which means there's more room on the floor to actually play.
Make Your Camping Trip Feel Like Home
Let's face it, some people just don't like to camp. Roughing it in the great outdoors is not always a picnic. Car camping is great, but there's an even better way to make your trip feel a little bit like home. Plastic drawers make it easy to tote comfort items, like snacks or toiletries, which can turn your camping experience into a blissful one!
Conceal Your Clutter
Using plastic drawers to organize your stuff is great, but plain white plastic isn't very appealing to look it. Don't worry though, there's an easy fix for that! Cut a piece of cardboard so that it covers the inside front of the drawer. Glue your favorite craft paper onto it, and then slide your handiwork inside the drawer. Use tape to keep it in place. Now your clutter is no longer showing!
Store Your Batteries
If you're like a lot of folks, you own multiple battery-operated items. That means you usually have a few different battery sizes lying around. This plastic drawer storage solution makes it easy to organize it all. It's almost like having your own mini hardware store!
Toddler Play Kitchen
This cute play kitchen is the perfect height for aspiring toddler chefs! Use vinyl stickers to cut the shapes for stove burners on top, and for the oven "door" on the front of the plastic drawers. Add plastic pots, tongs and an oven mitt to round out this adorable playset.
A wooden desk with six good sized drawers usually comes with a hefty price tag. However, you can make a super inexpensive DIY desk with a used door and two sets of plastic drawers. Top it off with a pretty cloth, and no one will ever know it's not the real deal.
Faux Wood Finish
If you're a DIY organizing queen, then you know how hard it can be to find plastic drawers that fit your decor. Not anymore! Use faux-wood paint to match a side table, and your hallway will look cozy in no time.
Take The Guesswork Out Of Snack Time
Why keep snacks hidden away in a cupboard? It's always hard to reach for what you want in the very back. Use plastic drawers to keep your stash of yummy mini-meals easily accessible. This setup also makes it a breeze for kids to grab what they want to go into their lunchbox!
First Aid Station
Plastic stationary drawers are great for customizing a first aid station and medicine cabinet. Don't forget to label what goes into which drawer, so you don't have to open it every time to find what you need.

Make A Lego Desk
Legos have been around for decades, and that's because kids of every generation love to play with them. But any parent will tell you that they are quite painful to step on! This Lego desk is a kid's dream come true. Plus, the plastic drawers are perfect for storing all the bits and pieces after playtime is over.
Creative Craft Closet
Many crafters have a dedicated craft box or corner, but what about a whole craft closet? Whoa - that sounds fabulous! There's plenty of room to stack plastic drawers up high! The more drawers you have, the more you can stock them full of craft goodies. It's a win-win scenario no matter which way you look at it!
Make Mornings A Breeze
Dressing the kids for school and sending them on their way is easy when you prepare for it ahead of time. Stack a couple of plastic 3-drawer sets on top of each other, and you have a week's worth of clothing and shoes ready to go!
Plastic drawers are both inexpensive and awesome. Do you need any other reason to go grab a few and start organizing?
