Decorating with Old Drawers

Karen of Redoux is no stranger to trashed furniture.  Most of the time she’s able to salvage pieces and turn them into something fabulous.  But there was one dresser…a dumpster find, it was in such bad shape that only the drawers were salvageable.

What to do with drawers that don’t have a dresser?  We’ll if you are Karen, you turn them into something pretty.  Karen painted these, added cute knobs, and filled them with mason jars and raffia.  Now, they look lovely as a centerpiece or countertop display.  Those mason jars will look absolutely adorable filled with flowers or pinwheels this spring.

  1. You do the nicest write ups of other people’s work. Thank you so much. I sold these, I better make myself one and get some flowers!

  2. Y’know, come to think of it, the dresser in my daughter’s room is getting kind of old…;)

  3. I’m on the lookout for drawers, and heck the dresser too, as Redoux proves they can be separated!
