Farmhouse Drawer Caddy

A little while agoΒ now I bought a sweet dressing table to give a little Raggedy Bits makeover and unfortunately during the bringing it home process 2 out of theΒ legs snapped off πŸ™ . After a little bit of anΒ investigation, I had found that the legs had been glued back on and were already broken! So rather than get upset about it I just thought about what otherΒ things I could do with the drawers and other parts. Β If you’ve been following me for a while now, you’ll know that I’m having a littleΒ Farmhouse spruce up around my home and decided to make a Farmhouse Drawer Caddy!

I took one of the broken legs and cut it in half using my drop saw. Then using my Milk Coloured Chalkpaint I gave the drawers and the leg spindle 2 coats, letting Β the paint dry in between coats.

Once all the parts were dry I then sanded them all back to let the wood come through. Then a quick wax to seal. I decided to go with some glass drawer pulls rather than the originals to give it a bit more charm.

After I placed the Farmhouse Drawer Caddy on my dinning room table, I just used bits and pieces from around my house to style it. Old Scales, an old jar full of vintage cutlery, wooden chopping board, dried babies breath in an old grater and a wooden chopping board all add a nice Farmhouse Style.

I also decided to change my blackboard in our dinning room.

I use this black board a lot and recently used it at Easter Β Time with my Easter Carrot Garland. My kids think I should have been a school teacher as I’m always drawing new things on there!Β  πŸ˜‰

So even though I was sold a dud, it was nice to know that some part of what was once a beautiful dressing table could be salvage.
