Free Drawer Front Farmhouse Kitchen Decor

March 18, 2015

When I'm not creating and blogging, I work at a furniture store four days a week.  When this drawer front was going to be thrown away, I took it home with me.

First I painted the drawer front with two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Old White". 

I wet distressed the drawer front and really liked the way the paint actually chipped off.  Then I waxed the piece with ASCP clear wax.

I am going to use three mismatched hardware pieces on my drawer front.  A vintage wire hook, a vintage cheese grater, and another pot metal hook (the finish has worn off).

I added two saw tooth type hangers on the back and hung the repurposed drawer front on a wall in my kitchen with two old tin cups and a farmhouse striped towel.

It works well with my other vintage kitchenware.

I hardly ever say "no" to free junk!

  1. This is beautiful. It would have made an equally funky 'serving tray'. Thanks for sharing all your creativity. I love getting your posts every day 😀

  2. Very pretty, Carlene. I love the look of your vintage kitchenware corner.

  3. Super cute and I love your adorable displays!

  4. This is so cute. What a wonderfully creative idea!

  5. I have never seen a cheese grater like this. I picked my two favorite projects to visit first--both were yours, haha!

  6. That is really cute and useful I like how you have the towel through the grader handle
    Your farmhouse corner is really up to date
