An Old Drawer Becomes New Book Storage

“Our bedroom is constantly littered with Brennan’s books so I was looking for a way to hide a stash of books there permanently,” says Christy at Confessions of a Serial DIYer.  So, when she spotted her husband heading out to the trash with an old drawer leftover from a past furniture makeover, Christy made him bring it right back inside.  She had an idea for how to repurpose that drawer.

Christy knew that the drawer had potential to solve her book storage dilemma.  First, she added legs to the bottom of the drawer, using some she’d found at a yard sale.  Next, she switched the boring white paint on the drawer for pretty, chippy layers of blue chalk paint.  A new mercury glass knob from Hobby Lobby completed the transformation.  Now the former drawer contains what was once a haphazard pile of storybooks–and it does so beautifully!
