Ombre Drawers Make Over


I have wanted to do a set of Ombre Drawers for a long time now.
I really love how mine turned out!

Yet again, we picked these drawers up from Hard Waste.
They are Retro Style, but in perfect condition.
I had just sold Ella's old drawers so these came at a great time.


I gave the entire chest a light sand,
just to take the shine off.

These are Dulux Paint samples I choose. 
They were $7 each.


They were given 2 coats each.
And the body had a white spray paint.


Inside of the Drawers,
I put scented paper in.

 In total the drawers cost $44
5 x $7 sample pots - used half a pot
1 x $9 white spray paint

  1. Oh these are so pretty, I'm not usually a fan of Ombre but I like these. I have to say, I too live in Melborne and I rarely see hard rubbish...unless I clean out the my own garage :P

  6. It turned out perfect! I love it! And the drawer liners are so adorable. I'm scared of painting furniture but I really want to try it! Hopefully I can get myself to try it soon because my to-do list just keeps getting longer. ;) I would love if you shared this at my Throwback Thursday link party. I hope to see you there! :) http://www.hubbymademe.com/throwback-thursday-no-5/
