IKEA Organizer - Set of Cubbie Drawers

You've seen plain wooden drawers at IKEA I am sure.
Well I found one at a garage sale...

and couldn't resist changing it up just a bit.

The one I used had 5 drawers... but I forgot to take a before picture.

Step one was to paint the drawers Pure White. 

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

In case you're wondering, I turned the drawers around backwards then added the drawer pulls... the back now has the pull hole and who would know??


An easy fix for something you find at garage sales all the time.

Just give it a quick coat of paint, flip the drawers around, and add your own drawer pulls or decorative knobs.
