Upcycled Drawer Succulent Planter

 I found this little divided, wooden drawer with knob at a local antiques/consignment shop for $5.

After a scrubbing with hot soapy water, I gave the little drawer a makeover.

 I painted the drawer with a couple of coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Colonel Mustard.


I opted to stencil the drawer sides with the new *Old Sign Stencils Shipping Crate Stamps stencil.

Some of the stencil areas were too large for the drawer sides, but I managed to find several stencils that will "do the trick".

I chose Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash for the stenciling.

I painted the knob with Dixie Belle Paint in Hurricane Gray, and used Hurricane Gray paint and my FolkArt Layering Block to faux distress the drawer edges.

I picked up these mini buckets in the party favor section of  Dollar Tree.

I brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Manatee Gray on the little party favor buckets.

I waxed the buckets and the drawer with Dixie Belle Best Dang Furniture Wax in Clear.

I found these three little mini succulents for $3 each at a local floral shop.

I planted them in the buckets in cactus and succulent soil.

I love the grays and mustard colors together!

And the stencils add so much fun to the mustard drawer sides!

I just fit the stencils in where I could!

*Old Sign Stencils provided me with complimentary samples. All opinions about these fabulous stencils are my own.

I am keeping this cute little drawer with the sweet little succulents all to myself!

Of course, you can use faux succulents, if you would rather!
