Shabby Chic Storage Idea!
Hello! How many of you have little projects tucked away in your garage or storage area? I redo alot of furniture so it is no surprise that I have many spare furniture parts lying around!
In this case I decided to make use of a lonely dresser drawer that had little future prospect besides collecting dust. Now remember, I try to make use out of EVERYTHING I have. (Budget Savvy Girl!)
I took this old dresser drawer (I had already sprayed the front with white spray paint) I finished it off with brushing on 3 coats of regular old semi-gloss white paint from Wal-Mart.
I love to keep lots of pillows and throws scattered around my living room so everybody feels comfy, but every once in awhile I like to spiff it up and I just do not have room for a quilt rack and there is alot of extra space under the bench in my living room so this drawer fit perfect It could also be used under a side table for magazine storage, if you are a magazine hoarder like me, it might be a good idea!
I have 2 very large queen size chenille blankets (tag sale finds) folded up and stored in this drawer, so there ended up being lots of room!
I just love thinking up new ways to tidy up my little Shabby cottage!

I will be partying with Cielo today for Show off your Cottage Monday at
Have a lovely day!

  4. Hi! I love your idea Olivia. I think I MUST have a drawer somewhere that I could do this to. You have given me a great idea. I need storage...but have it accessible too. Love it. Great pictures. YOu did a really good job.

  5. Hi Olivia! I love your use of the drawer and this area looks so nice!!
    Be a sweetie,

  6. Oh wow Olivia - that's such a brilliant idea indeed! I love your shabby chic, so romantique. Stopping by from SOYCM.

  7. I was JUST thinking of this same idea, for under my boys' (all of them) beds! Only with wheels. Yours is lovely!

  8. Olivia, it is beautiful! What a great storage idea, I love the shabby!


  9. Olivia, You are such a clever lady. One of the things about you that caused me to follow your blog is the way you recycle and reuse. That is always a good idea weather you are on a budget or have lots of money to spend. God gave us one earth, and it is our responsibility to be responsible with our resources. I think that shows a great respect to our savior.


Hello Friend! Thank you so much for stopping by! I love to hear your thoughts! Hugs, Olivia
