Graphite Table with Decoupage Drawers – Themed Furniture Makeover


Guess what today is… it’s Themed Furniture Makeover Day!  Once a month my friends and I all do furniture makeovers based on a theme, and this month the theme is Black.  (You can see all my previous TFMD projects HERE.)

Themed Furniture Makeover Day

Here’s the beauty I started with – yep, it was only $5 at a yard sale.  My mom picked it up for me, isn’t she nice?  😉  It is low and quite wide…

I bought some sheet music scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby and glued them in the drawers with Mod Podge.

I love the surprise they give when the drawers are opened.

I also added new hardware (also from Hobby Lobby) – aren’t these key pulls fantastic?

I added some fun staging with a few of my favorite pieces.  This faux suitcase is a pretty place that holds all my paintbrushes.  (Shhh that’s a secret!)  😉

What do you think of the decoupage drawers?  I kind of love the look, and I may have to do it more often!

    The graphite finish is simple and stunning! Anything but basic and boring now! Those key drawer pulls are a fantastic finishing touch!

    Jen, those skeleton key pulls are fabulous! Wow, I love what you did with this dresser. $5.00 – wowee, now that’s a score if I ever saw one. Beautiful makeover!

    I’ve never seen a piece shaped like your little table. I’m wondering if it was originally an end table or a bedside table? You gave it a great makeover and I love the added touch of lined drawers and unusual hardware.

    This is beautiful. I have yet to try decoupage myself yet, but this just inspired me. Now to find some pretty paper. Hope you are having a great week!
