Turn the legs of your old jeans into fabric baskets. This tutorial gives measurements for making 3 different sizes of baskets. This is quite clever. They would look quite nice on a dresser for loose stuff.
Upcycle your old denim jeans into these useful baskets, no sewing required. One for remotes and one with a loop to hang on the coat tree for gloves. Took maybe an hour total for both and that was sewing by hand.
