A couple days ago I showed you a quick picture of an old vintage desk drawer that I put some books in for storage; well here is a follow up to that post.  I took a couple of the drawers and made them pretty!

It was really easy….I decided to use Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Paris Gray for the outside and then Graphite on the inside of the drawer.  I only waxed the front of the drawer with clear wax and left the other areas as is.

Here are a couple pictures of how they turned out, I actually love them:-)  They will be for sale on my etsy shop or in the Falls Church store soon.

Great for books, toys, art supplies, etc.

I lie the contrast in colors
