R UR DRAWERS TIRED - blue tall boy

 
 
Time to show you some tips and tricks to refreshing your drawers.
 
 
Here is how this dresser transformed on the outside.
 
 
The color is just amazing distressed over the dark stained wood.
 
 
The dresser was in decent shape with only a few repairs needed.
The biggest problem was on the inside.
 
 
 The drawers were lined with gold and black MacTac shelf liner.
I'm sure once upon a time marbled black MacTac was very desirable,
 
 BEFORE                                                       AFTER
 
but it's not just about pretty paper.

 
Everything about the interior was dirty and worn out.

 
So I removed the sticky black paper, pulled all the staples that also held the paper in, removed the
gluegun glue that also held the paper in, and then washed the entire drawer with soap and water.
 

 Another simple trick is to lube your drawer runners so they run in and out much easier.
You can use a candle or a bar of soap by simply rubbing them along the bottom of your drawer.
 
 
Because I have my furniture paste wax handy most of the time I quickly paint some on the inside
along the drawer supports and even on the inside walls where the drawer might rub. 


 
I finished these drawers off by lining them with a prepasted wallpaper.
I do offer a tutorial here about how to install unpasted wallpaper.


Here are some new treasures you can find on FIRSTFINDS etsy ...

  1. Very nice! Goodness, whoever put that 'lovely' black and gold liner in certainly made sure it was staying put!! Much nicer now. Will have to check out your tutorial, as I just bought a roll of unpasted paper the other day to use as drawer lining. (Nope, it is not black and gold!)

  4. I have a question that I was hoping, when I saw your title, might be answered but alas you were not reading my mind today. I have some vintage furniture that was my grandmothers and the drawer bottems continuously come out. Any suggestions on how I can fix this myself?
