See... I told you!

An old chest of IKEA storage drawers adorned with lovely children's art...

Step one was to paint the chest of drawers white. 

I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Casement on this project 
because of the great coverage it offers.  I wanted
to be sure to cover those clouds very well. Fusion Mineral Paint covers completely and goes on smoothly.

Notice I turned the thumb pulls on the drawers to the back. 


When the Fusion Mineral Paint was dry, 
I grabbed my Historic Route 66 stencil from 
Old Sign Stencils by Funky Junk Interiors.

I laid the stencil on an angle on the front of the drawers.
Using Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash and a dry brush, I 
pounced the paint onto the stencil. I used light coats
but used it darker in some areas and lighter in others to
give the image a distressed look.

When the stencil paint was dry I gave it good sanding to further distress the Route 66 image. 

I used clear wax to give the chest of drawers another layer of protection.

I drilled a hole in the center of each drawer and added a vintage wooden knob.

This cute little chest of drawers is perfect for an office
or craft room to hold supplies and crafts.

  1. I love this. I have oodles of these drawer units and I thought I was fancy when I painted stripes on them. The stencil is just perfect. I might have to steal this idea from you.
