I can’t get over how beautiful this DIY farmhouse riser from an old drawer turned out. I was gifted a couple of the cute little drawers, we think came from an old sewing machine but I can’t say for sure, and I have held on to them, knowing one day I would use them for something amazing!
That day has come. This is not a step-by-step tutorial but it was recorded via Facebook Live and you can watch the recording below. Or read on and I will give you a brief synopsis of the process. It was really quite simple.
If you wanna make one of these for yourself, I have a few links that may help you out. Here is the supply list I used.
The process was so so easy, which you saw if you watched the video. But I will explain it here. I simply flipped the drawer over, bottom up and hot glued the knobs to the bottom to create feet.
Then, I wiped down s few random spots with vaseline, to keep the paint from sticking, and painted the entire tray. Once dry, I wiped away the areas where I had applied the vaseline, revealing the wood color beneath. This little trick gives your pieces an authentically chippy look in minutes.
Seriously, it was that simple. You could even skip the vaseline step if you wanted to and it would make it that much more simple! Or substitute it for some light distressing with some sandpaper, which I also did.
Next, came the styling of my brand new DIY farmhouse riser. I used some of my favorite pieces from my BRAND NEW HOME DECOR BOUTIQUE called the HomeGoods Market by Roost + Restore!
