Lonely Drawer Gets a Glam Makeover

The local Habitat ReStore asked Amy Jo to take a few of their dresser-less drawers home to see if she could turn them into something that would make them more appealing to buyers.  Check out what she did to make them fabulous at The Little Moments.

The drawer that Amy Jo picked had probably been separated from it’s dresser for years, and was languishing on the dusty floor of the ReStore when she claimed it.  She gave it a thorough cleaning, sanded it, and painted it yellow.  Pretty floral paper was decoupaged onto the drawer front for added appeal.  The finishing touch was a glamorous glass knob.  What a pretty way to store odds and ends!  Amy Jo notes that your local ReStore has lots of these drawers waiting to be refabbed.

    Hey! Thanks for the feature!
    I actually got it from a local store called ReHouse, (www.rehouseny.com) which does more architural salvage than the ReStore for Habitat for Humanity. But I becha there are some lonely drawers at most ReStores too!

    BTW, I used your doorknob, epoxy, drill a hole and add a bolt tutorial Beckie on that doorknob! I knew that was going to come in handy one day!!
