A dresser drawer saved from the side of the road.

This old dresser drawer started out looking like this...

I painted the bottom of the drawer with chalkboard paint then turned it on it's side.

On the top I added a piece of trim moulding and a slightly wonky decorative wooden piece removed from another furniture project.

I painted the drawer with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White.

Another piece of moulding was added to the inside as a chalk holder.

The finished project can hang on the wall or sit on a counter with a place to leave a quick reminder.
