Makeover Time...

You've got to love vintage furniture...

When an old dresser couldn't be salvaged and needed to be put to rest, we couldn't help ourselves and kept the drawers just in case we could think of something to do with them later on.
Well, that day finally came....

By decoupaging the inside of the drawer with vintage music sheets...

...and by adding glass drawer pulls as feet...


...we turned the old drawer into a deep "tray" perfect to be displayed in a big coffee table holding magazines, the remote controls or your favorite drink...

Note that this time we didn't paint the wood, we just bee waxed it to show its beautiful grain...

Align CenterLike we said at the beginning of this post, you've got to love vintage furniture...and we love it to pieces!...even leftover pieces!!!

Thank you Jen for hosting the
Makeover Open House!

Now, we are on our way to visit all the other participants...
Share, Inspire and Be Inspired!
XOXO,
Clara & Marcela

And drawers can be used as wall display shelves, the base for mixed media artwork, memory box, even as a roombox for miniatures. They are one of the best finds when you want to get creative,

Nice reuse project! I guess this was the month for projects using sheet music and book pages. :) You and Jen were thinking alike! Glad you could find a clever use for a drawer you loved.
