Shabby Chic Drawer Boxes

I don’t know how it worked out this way, but I accomplished so much more today than I thought I would. Do you write daily lists? I am the list queen. Everything gets listed, but that doesn’t mean it gets done. Actually, half of my daily list rarely gets done. Well, today it happened! Woo Hoo! I crossed everything off my list.

To reward myself, and because I had time left at the end of the day, I finished a project that I had to put away when Christmas got too crazy.

Now most normal people would have thrown these little dresser drawers away, but I have never been accused of being normal. Look at them! They were a mess.

I removed the peeling layers and the drawer pulls.

Check these out! I had the bright idea of adding these old cupboard drawer handles as feet on the drawers. They were pretty gunky. Yep, another item most normal people probably would tossed.

They didn’t look too bad after a long soak and hard scrub.

Wow! Paint instantly makes things look better.

I went a bit further with the sandpaper. You know me, I just love me some shabby chic.

I think they turned out pretty good.

The smaller ones are my favorite…,

…but I’m most proud of the larger one. Once I started cleaning, scraping and sanding the drawers, this one fell apart. Yep, it wasn’t pretty. I had to completely rebuild it. I hate to admit it, but I actually considered throwing it away. Gasp!

  1. You did such a great job of refurbishing those drawers. Glad you could save the last one. What a shame to not use them, you have good vision gal. They turned out so cute in white paint. You’ll be able to use them for so many things, enjoy them. I always enjoy your posts. Happy Weekend
