Dresser Drawer DIY Project

I ended up with several dresser drawers from another project that I repurposed into a cabinet/tv stand for our home. Since I’m a person that can never throw anything away, I decided I had to find another purpose for these leftover drawers. I am so excited to share this dresser drawer DIY project with y'all!

Being in a small home, we are always looking for additional storage options and I decided this would be great for under-the-bed storage for the guest room.

Repurposing an Old Dresser Drawer

I know that I didn’t have to get too fancy seeing these would be under the bed, but I couldn’t help myself! I obviously went a little overboard on this project, but that’s okay because my guests always think it’s fabulous to find something so cute in an unexpected place.

First, I covered the front of the drawer with my Texture Medium and used my Chrysanthemum Fauxy Roller.

Then I painted, distressed, and waxed to create a fabulous finish.  Make sure to watch the video for all the details on creating this gorgeous finish.

To make this drawer work under the bed I knew I needed the shortest casters I could find. I used a little woodblock glue on the bottom of the drawer to screw the casters on.

This is a great finish that could be used on any piece of furniture! You definitely don’t have to hide it under the bed as I did! I hope you enjoyed this dresser drawer DIY project!
