I have been on the hunt for the last year for a set of dressers that could serve as nightstands by our bedside. We have been using normal nightstands and have found that there ends up being an avalanche of books, monitors, glasses of water, cell phone chargers and many other random objects that are too large to fit on such a small space. Please tell me we aren't alone? I don't know where else all the random stuff would go so we decided we could stuff it in yet another drawer if we had a dresser. Right? Okay so here is what I found for the Hubby's side of the bed. I'm kinda jealous of his but it works best on his side. I'll show you mine once I finish.
Don't you love what a fresh coat of paint can do for a worn down piece
of furniture? I see no reason to buy things new when I can make them new
to me. $10 and a fresh coat of paint and it's just as pretty as can be.
One thing that comes with the territory of old wooden furniture is rough wood that doesn't glide easily when your trying to pull the drawers in and out. A little trick to get them moving like new is to take a bar of soap and rub the bottom or the drawers and the inside of the tracks generously with the bar of soap. Put the drawer back in place and you will be good to go!
This will also work on kitchen cabinet drawers, old doors that stick and well...pretty much anything old that sticks and needs a little coat of wax to help it slide.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope y'all have a blessed day!
