Three-Drawer Thrift Store Chest

A new paint job and some cute knobs are the perfect fix for this little thrift store chest!

Hi y’all! I have a quick little makeover to share today. This is one of the first pieces I sold at the Christmas Craft Market.

I found this  little three drawer chest at the thrift store for $4.99:


After painting with my  DIY Chalk Paint and adding some cute knobs from Hobby Lobby, It looks so much more up-to-date:

I originally  thought it would be perfect for organizing jewelry or make-up, but now I can see it as the perfect mail center…all hidden inside these drawers. Don’t you think?

A new paint job and some sweet knobs are the perfect touch for this little thrift store chest!

I lined the drawers with pretty contact paper I found at TJ Maxx:


I wonder what it was used for before? I kinda wish I had kept it now!

  1. Cute Christy- It would actually make a great little jewelry and keepsake box in someone’s bedroom I think…

  2. Ooohhh I need this for my jewelry! It’s adorable 🙂

  3. What a great little cabinet! It would also be perfect to house all the paperwork in the kitchen that accumulates before you have time to file it away 🙂 Great makeover!

  4. You did great job giving that adorable little box a new life. The knobs are wonderful, great choice, love you used two different kinds. I’ll have to think on what I’d use it for. Too bad you sold it so quickly. I’d have a hard time letting go of nice little items.
    Happy week

  5. I like the mail idea…although I’d put it in there and never see it again… :/

    Oh, and I love your knobs! Bahahahaha! 😛


  6. I would use it for stationery, stamps, cute cards, return labels, etc. or a useful box for hanging or organizing pictures on my walls, hold my tools, 3-M adhesive strips, hangers, level, felt pads or bumpers to protect my walls, etc or if you are a tea drinker, storage for a variety of teas, so elegant. As you tell I am all about boxes and storage.

  7. Such a sweet transformation. I would use it for all the things that find their way into my pockets!

  8. So cute, I love what you did with this piece. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Oh I think I would have had a hard time letting it go! You had a great vision for that piece and what a deal too!!!
