Old Drawer Gets An Off the Map Makeover

Cara from Craft Dictator was gifted this old drawer from her mom.  When it comes to gifts, this one wasn’t the prettiest–but luckily, Cara had vision.

After coating the drawer in primer, Cara dug some pretty turquoise paint from out of her mom’s paint stash.  She painted the entire drawer turquoise.  Next, she decoupaged a map of Texas onto the bottom of the drawer.  “I decided to put this on my coffee table either with some books on it or some glassware maybe.  It might also just house my TV changers for a while!  Either way I love love love the way it turned out!” Cara says enthusiastically.  It’s a brand new life for a drawer that could have easily been sent to the curb.
