I've never seen anything like this before. I love the idea because it's so unique. I wonder what I'd look like in my house!

This is a very unique idea. I can see one on the kitchen wall holding my kitchen utensils. No digging in drawers to find my favorite spatula. Or a small one by the back door to hold car keys. The ideas are running wild in my head. Thanks for the inspiration.

That's very creative and would make a unique focal point in any room! Some drawers can be heavy, though, especially from older furniture, so I would be careful to hang them somewhere that could handle the weight. I am not sure how to keep the pictures in the drawer/frame, either. Any ideas?

I love this idea! It's so much more unique than just hanging a painting on the wall, and it adds some dimension to the room.

How did you attach the drawers to the wall? And, did you attach the drawers to each other in any way?
