Battle of the Bands

My husband rescued this little chest of drawers from the curb on trash day.  What a guy!

Each drawer had old heavy metal band names carved into it, such as AC/DC, Metallica and Slayer.

And the veneer was damaged on the bottom.

It received a through cleaning (there were a lot of Hersey Kisses flags inside the drawers).  Then I glued the veneer, using binder clips and heavy objects to hold it in place while the glue dried.

Next, a little wood putty and a lot of sanding!  I thought about new drawer pulls, but in the end, I decided clean up the existing pulls with Howards Restore-a-Finish.

My craft room doesn't have much for drawer space, so I'm so excited to re-organize.

No more signs of adolescent angst!  Isn't it cute now?

I'm linking up...
