Repurpose Your Furniture and SavePosted: November 7, 2011
I have a love-hate relationship with this piece of furniture. I discovered this tower of drawers tucked away in our guest bedroom after my hubby and I had been married a couple of months (he owned a home before we were even dating.) I decided I wanted to paint these drawers red. I did. They turned out pink. I coated the pink with more paint to make it RED. It didn’t work. See picture below.
Due to the salmon/pink color I decided to sand the whole piece. It took a million hours. Okay, It probably took me about 15 hours of hard labor, but it felt like a million. Now, I have this wonderful set of drawers that we keep small objects in. I’m pretty sure it is supposed be a cd holder. Who keeps boxes of cd’s anymore? Look around your house. I’m sure there are items you could spruce up and repurpose.
