It’s Saturday Friends, Yippy!
Today I have a trash to treasure project that was very easy to do!
Many many moons ago, I acquired this drawer! I can’t remember much about it but I have had it stashed in my pile for quite a while. I think before my daughter was born 25 years ago, lol. Not long, right!?
It is a drawer off of an old dresser. And my thought process was a little necklace holder. Can you picture it too?
I only have one and since it was so many years ago, I don’t know if the other drawers were in bad shape or not. So this is what I am working with today. It’s wavy and lovely, and ready for a make-over.
After cleaning this drawer front up I decide to paint it with chalk paint first. It bled through like I thought it would. I ended up painting 1 coat of Minwax polyurethane and two more coats of Behr paint in Falling Snow. That took care of the bleedthrough.
If you have been following me for any amount of time, you know I love transfers. Using a transfer piece on this drawer front just made sense. I have started using parts and pieces of several transfers and the piece I’m using today is from re-design called White Fleur, you can see the project used it on here.
Here’s the drawer painted with chalk paint.
I drilled a hole in the middle of the other two holes because I am adding knobs to this drawer front so the necklaces hang.
The knobs that came on the drawer front were the ones I have in my hands above. I just added white chalk paint and then distressed them to show the gold coming through. I also found two other knobs just the same so I am guessing there was another drawer at one point and I just saved the knobs for a future project.
Here is how it turned out.
What do you think?
And I had everything on hand so no money was spent on this project!
The knobs go perfectly with this transfer!
Well, what do you think?

Hope this gives you the inspiration to try transfers if you haven’t done so!
At my age enjoy seeing projects that I could actually do. Thank you so much.
I’m so glad Cat!! As I get older it’s getting harder and harder to do some things around here! Have a great day!
