So, I found this drawer.  It's a great drawer.  Plain, wooden, sturdy.  About 20" long, 10" across, 8" deep.  I was thinking I could use it to keep stuff under my bed, but does anyone have any other ideas?  Ideas for potential decorations would also be appreciated (though it's pretty cool the way it is).

What about a shadowbox or maybe a shelf?

On HGTV I saw someone make an ottoman out of an old drawer, but the foam is pretty expensive.

An ottoman!  Shocked  Wow, I really really never would have thought of that.  That's an awesome idea. 

And yeah, I'd probably make a shelf out of it, but I'm kinda low on wall space.  (I live in a tiny, tiny house, which is why so much of my stuff is under my bed.)

What the woman did was turn the drawer upside down and then get a piece of really thick styrofoam (they sell at jo-ann and other stores but it's close to 15-20 a yard) and then she glued the foam to the bottom of the drawer.  Then she took fabric and covered the foam, and I think either painted or stained the drawer. 

If you're in need of storage solutions, you could maybe incorporate this idea if you put some kind of 'lid' on the drawer and attached the foam to that, you'd have sort of a fender type table.
