Before and After: Metal Drawer Storage

Day 3 of Workspace Make-Over, Day 2 was Thread Organizer and Day 1 was Five Dollar Craigslist table

It was about time that I found something that could hold all of my trims and notions. 

This jewel of storage was found at a local thrift store for a whooping $10.00! (Not to mention that I went on discount day so it was even cheaper than that.) 

It came complete with caster wheels on the bottom and six lovely, deep and wide drawers to fill goodies in. 

"No, I don't need help out to my car, this baby is on a roll!"

Covering the army green with a coat of white primer. I used the Aqua Color from Rustoleum Painters Touch Collection. Covering both the inside and outside of the drawers. 

Bright Red Gloss was used to paint the handles. 

I have a ton of trims, binding, laces and zippers. This metal storage was a great way to keep everything organized and able to see exactly what I have when looking for something specific. 

This is almost the complete make-over of my workspace. Look for tomorrow's post on the finished project.

  1. This looks amazing! I'd like to do something similar to my filing cabinet. It's so blah...

    There's nothing like a great deal!
