Sewing Machine Drawers Re-purposed As Plant Holder


I purchased these two vintage sewing machine drawers at the consignment shop recently for $10.  Usually these drawers are just sold individually, but these two came with part of the sewing machine cabinet.


First I painted the outside of the drawers and the rack with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Old White".

After I "wet distressed" the pieces with a wet terry rag, I applied clear wax.

I checked my recycling bin and found four Healthy Choice soup cans.  I washed them and removed the labels.

I stuck faux pots of greenery in each can for this paint project reveal, but I plan to fill the cans with real live plants in mid to late May.

I will display my sewing drawer planter outside on my covered patio, so the drawers will be protected from rain.

I love these sewing machine drawers for plants!
