Make Your Own Drawer Table

17/04/2015 0 Comment(s) Uniik Ideas,

So, I have a little project that I'm working on that I'd like to share.  We live in Phoenix now, but we still have our 200+ year old farmhouse in Maine.

We have decided to turn it into a short term rental property.  Two fold, one being that we get to share the house with lots of amazing people from all over the world, and secondly, we miss Maine and LOVED living there.  Part of this project is to furnish a 4500sq ft house to accomodate 24 people!  Once it it furnished, we'd be able to go there yearly and enjoy an incredible Maine vacation in our own piece of Maine history.

So, this blog is about Drawer Tables.  Just wanted to give a bit of background before I eleborate on the subject at hand.  I am using adorable and wonderful pillow covers in each of the room in Maine, and I would hate to see people throwing them on the floor at night.  Hence, the problem.  What do I provide for them to put them in?  A basket?  Sure, I could do that.  But, big baskets can be expensive when you have to buy a lot, plus, the entire theme of the house is classic vintage Maine, so I need something with a bit more pizazz.

Then, I found the perfect solution!  Affordable, practicle, recyclable, and oh, so very Classic Vintage!

Drawer Tables and containers.  Simply take an old dresser's drawers (you can easily find these at garage sales or Second Hand stores).  The older the better,  as long as the drawers are in decent shape.

Secondly, you can buy legs, long and short ones at any Box hardware store.  You also get simple brackets (under $2 a piece) that the legs screw into.

Simply take the drawer, turn it over, screw the brackets on in each corner.  Twist the legs on, and viola!  Your're done.

You can now stain, paint, sand or really do whatever you want to the piece to make it fit into your decor.

I love it!  Here are a few examples.  Send us your favoriate creations.  I'll be sure to post more about my Maine Refurnishing adventure and my own cool drawer tables I'm going to be making.
