SO, from my refurbished chest project, I had acquired two small drawers that I was excited to do something with. Since we had our bathroom redone a few years ago, I’ve always wanted to add shelving above the toilet for some added storage. As crafty as I am, I wasn’t ready to attempt putting up floating shelves all on my own, so I decided to get a little crafty with it!
Heres what I had to work with: two drawers, left over grey paint, some wire, and a heavy duty staple gun.
I started cleaning out the drawers with some cleaner and a damp rag. This would allow the paint to apply more cleanly and smooth. They I turned both of the drawers upside down so that the bottom of the drawer was facing up and twisted the wires at each end like so:
I lined the wire up on the back of the drawer and used 4-5 stapes on each end to secure the wire on each end of the drawer. When the wires were completely fastened to the back of the drawers, I brought them into the bathroom to see what they would look like hung up.
I loved how they looked so far and couldn’t wait to get some dark grey paint and hardware on the drawers to bring it all together!
I brought the drawers back into the office and put some tarp down to paint. I painted the entire surface of the drawers including the interior with left over dark grey paint that I had used to paint our office.
I let the drawers dry for around 3-4 hours and then applied another coat to make sure everything was evenly distributed.
I was so thrilled with the paint color and how nice the drawers were becoming. Heres what the drawers looked like with two coats of paint:
After the drawers were completely dry I added some hardware and hung them up again in the bathroom. I immediately added some design touches with some photos, jars, and bathroom supplies. I was so excited with how they turned out. I think the drawers/shelves really tie the whole bathroom together!
At the end of the project I had spent a total of ZERO dollars and gotten a super cute way to store some bathroom supplies in our tiny bathroom!
