I often get asked if I want some piece of furniture that someone is getting rid of. I often say yes, even before I see it, just because I know the incredible power of paint and new hardware. This drawer bank was one of those pieces. I’ve been using it in my basement for some of my sewing supplies, just the way it was.
There was nothing special about it, but it did the job. Then, during this super long Winter, I realized that I need more storage in my mudroom and thought this would be just perfect for those extra hats, gloves, and stuff. But I wasn’t going to move it up to my mudroom until I gave it a facelift.
So, I whipped up a batch of homemade chalk paint and applied several coats.
New updated hardware makes such a major difference in a piece and D. Lawless Hardware has a great variety at an incredible price.
Well, new paint and hardware created an amazing transformation in this cheap manufactured piece.
Isn’t it amazing?!
So,when you are offered a freebie piece, give the possibilities some good thought.
