Last week inspiration and supplies met in such a timely way. On Monday, I got this little dresser for free at a very cool Craigslist "curb alert."
Then on Wednesday I was inspired by these drawer front hangers on Design Sponge.
Lucky for me, I just happen to have an extra drawer, some power tools, and a bag full of bits and bobs from old projects !
First I used the Handisaw to cut off the drawer front. It worked fine. Then cleaned up the back a bit. I happen to have two knobs left over from this old dresser. (Maybe someday I will switch them out for some cool Anthro knobs, but so far this is a completely free project.) I carefully measured and drilled holes for two more knobs. I added a picture hanger thingy to the back and scrubbed the whole thing with a Mr. Clean Sponge.
For now I like the yellows, though I am thinking of many other places and colors this could go.
