I’ve made this type of “drawer” many times and they are inexpensive and fun to make! They can be used in a variety of situations. I’ve done these many times in our homes such as in our Magical Dark Sea Bathroom Makeover where the bottom cupboards of the sink were deep and hard to get to. On the bathroom post, you can see how I made a drawer from a box complete with a handle. I also used basic longer baskets.  You might also want to check out our Inexpensive Herb Closet Makeover where we took a small coat closet we remade into a “herb closet” using LOTS of dollar store baskets etc!
