I almost passed on this plain 8 drawer cabinet last April while visiting my daughter in Madison.
I didn’t really need it, I have too much stuff, would there be room in the car? (geez!)
It was sitting there in the Thrift Store for only $8. They had just put it out that day.
I had to take it home. (I just had too.)
As soon as I got it home, I painted it with a couple coats of black paint and gave
it a clear wax coat. It sat in my office that way for the next four months.
(I’m starting to notice a pattern here.) Anyway…. I decided that the cabinet needed more.
After receiving these cool number stencil,
Deco Art Americana Decor Stencil, Old World Numbers* (*affiliate link)
I stenciled each drawer 1-8.
To keep the numbers from looking too new or bright, I lightly sanded over the letters with a
extra fine sanding block and applied another coat of clear wax.
My hubby helped me put on these vintage looking drawer pulls I’d found on Etsy.
I spent more than twice as much on the drawer pulls than I did the cabinet.
I’m so happy with the way it turned out. Doesn’t it look beautiful?
