I’m not kidding when I tell you that today’s project has been on my to do list for ever! It’s that classic story of if you’re married to a plumber your shower is always leaking. Or your hubby is a builder and that back deck has been unfinished for years!! I’ve become that Plummer and Builder with furniture in our house! After moving recently it dawned on me just how many pieces of furniture are patiently waiting in line for their new look. So lucky for these set of drawers our Waste Not Wednesday Challenge for this month is Furniture makeovers! Let’s get on with How to paint a Farmhouse Card Catalog.

- Small set of drawers. I have this set for years but I have seen something similar at my local thrift store.
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Casement
- Paint Brush
- 120 Grit Sandpaper and sander
- Number Stencil
- Makeup wedge
- Americana Lamp Black Acrylic Paint
- Painters Tape
Step 1 – These drawer pulls couldn’t be removed. So taping them prevents paint from being painted onto them. Remove them if you’re able because it makes painting and sanding much easier. Wipe away any dust or dirt.
Step 2 – Start with the drawer fronts, give them one coat of paint. Then move onto the main part of the drawers. Repeat.
Step 3 – Using your sander and 120 grit sandpaper distress to your liking. Then using your stencil and makeup wedge stencil on the numbers. Because the stencil numbers are quite small I wasn’t too fussed if a little of the outer circle went on the drawers. It gives a nice Vintage farmhouse look.
Step 4 – Distress the numbers lightly.
And there you have a Farmhouse Card Catalog to store all of your little bits and pieces in!
