I picked up a couple of drawers when I dug around in the sheds at my daughter’s new place. One of them was the perfect size to fix up to look like an old crate.
It had a bit of old chippy paint on it which looked interesting but was in bad enough shape that I thought it would continue to peel off and make a mess. So I got out my palm sander and quickly removed it. (Remember to do this safely with a mask!)
I sanded the whole drawer to remove any rough edges or surfaces. A couple of nails had to be hammered back in as well. The inside had what looked like a grease stain on it. So I decided to paint the inside.
First I had to seal the stain with a stain blocking primer. I sprayed it with Home Hardware’s Beautitone Stopz.
Now for the fun stuff!
