DIY: Makeover a set of drawers

Drawer makeover by Erena Te Paa

Nothing kicks that A into G like the wriggle of a baby in your belly and I am in full-on nesting mode.

The hubs’ and I have been squatting in a sub-par master bedroom since we bought our house nearly 4 years ago! so it’s time for a restyle and this is my first makeover.  Drawers for all those smalls.

I purchased this unloved set of mid-century style drawers for $100 on Trade Me, rough and ready to go.

NOW FOR THE RESTYLING

Step 1: Take your sander and sand away (wear a dust mask and clear excess dust once done.)

Step 2: Choose your varnish or paint and mark out what areas are to be coated. (Painters tape is great for stopping spills and keeping lines straight).

Step 3: Once marked, apply a couple of coats of paint (use a good roller and paint before varnishing).

Step 4: Leave to dry and then apply your final coat of varnish and you’re done.
