Don't you just love old sewing machine cabinet drawers? I've purchased and upcycled several stray drawers over the years, usually by finding them one drawer at a time. I see them all the time in vintage shops and flea markets, but they rarely come home with me because of the high price tags.

Four old drawers. Four new looks.
This is what I started with. They were a little plain and boring, but who turns down anything with a price tag of $free? Thanks to my mom for passing them along to me after she rescued them at a church rummage sale.
This drawer was painted with a coat of AS Duck Egg Chalk Paint, then distressed with a wet cloth. Once it was dry, I taped off part of one side and sprayed it with two coats of Rust-Oleum chalkboard spray paint (*affiliate link).
Two of the drawers were updated with a more rustic look with the help of some single letter stencils and strips of jute webbing (*affiliate link). After stenciling each strip of jute webbing, I applied a thick coat of Mod Podge to the back and stuck it directly to the side of the drawer.
Perfect for planting, organizing bathroom supplies, or for storing bits and pieces of cottage and farmhouse treasures. Now I need to figure out what to do with the broken drawer frames that were part of this package deal.
