I just wanted to share this simple DIY with you on this old set of drawers I have. My parents bought these at their next door neighbors garage sale over 10 years ago and they’ve somehow ended up with me (not that I’m complaining). I seem to be the go-to person to take unwanted furniture and it has been both a blessing and curse. A blessing because I love furniture and 9 times out of 10 can turn something boring into something beautiful and a curse because I want to keep everything for myself and I’m running out of room. This set of drawers had been sitting in the back of a cupboard for the past 6 years.
I had an urge to paint something peachy pink after seeing some gorgeous photos on Pinterest of peach colored furniture so I thought I would use this little set of drawers as my practice piece. I’m glad I did. First off, a trip to my local Bunnings to get some supplies.
Here’s what I bought:
Taubmans “Hush Puppies” 500ml Sample Pot of Paint- $9
Sander sheets for my Dads palm sander. I used the 80grit- $12.73
Prestige Cup Metallic Gold Drawer Pulls- Pack of 4- $12
Total Cost: $33.75
Now to attach the handles. I picked these Prestige cup drawer pulls from Bunnings for $12 for a pack of 4. I can’t find them online but here’s a link to the Chrome Plated Hampton Cup Pull or the Prestige Brass Shell Cup Drawer Pulls. Personally, I prefer the Brass.
This was such a quick project. It only took me an afternoon to finish and I’m thrilled with the outcome and now I have heaps of paint left over for another project.
I hope you enjoyed my little DIY.
