What would you put in 24 drawers?


I love this look but I'm afraid they would all end up as junk drawers. You could alphabetize them with the last one being XYZ. via

This is a beautiful piece and it would be great for my collections: buttons, keys, pens, spoons, envelopes, stamps, ribbons, dice & dominoes, coins, postcards, spoons, beads, sea glass, stickers, marbles, rubber bands... etc.!

Oh I would so use this in my studio to hold all my art and diy supplies. Lovely!!! each drawer catalogued so I can find what I want when I want it instead of sorting through piles...

Junk drawers would happen to me.

If I can't see it; oh dear!

Love the piece! Love the advice, too!

They would indeed Rosemary. A studio with lovely well used pieces such as this would be a real delight to work/play in :)

My mother had several pieces like this one and knew EXACTLY what was in each and every drawer, despite not labeling them. I smile every time I see something like this--I know she would have loved it.

Sue....Do you have your mother's piece with all the drawers now? I would love to have one for all of my hardware and small tools. Your mom must have had a compartmentalized brain to know where everything was with no labels.

Vicki...I would have loved one of these back in my days of sewing with a red hot needle.

You and I could have loads of fun searching through these drawers loaded with good junk.
All of my drawers are in a jumble but I know where things are somehow.
