You have two choices, move the pipes (plumber), or cut the ends of the drawers off (carpenter).

Sadly this happens all to often---Open the wall and move the plumbing---

You can also pull the fronts off of the drawers, pitch the drawers and nail them to the front as a false drawer. So you have several options. I would suggest next time having all your measurements with you when you purchase cabinets, and cabinets shouldn't be an impulse buy. :thumbsup:

Yup, two more options to consider (after you pitch the drawers):
-put a stick (1x3?) behind the drawer opening and screw the drawer fronts to that
-cut out the drawer divider and install a door
