Shabby Chic Drawer Makeover

I picked up this art drawer for $3 from a thrift store… I gave it a shabby chic makeover and added small legs… It is now a handy drawer for sewing bits and pieces….

I glued some door knobs to the bottom of the drawers for legs and glued a faux pearl into the indent in the drawer knobs. I gave the drawers a coat of white primer/sealer and then a couple of coats of flat Antique White USA paint… I sanded it back a bit to give it a shabby feel.

I found some vintage sewing prints on Pinterest and printed them and used matt Mod Podge to attach them to the drawers. When the Mod Podge was completely dry I used a flat water based clear polyurethane to paint the drawers.

I now have a cute drawer for my sewing needs.
