I cleaned the drawer because it had been in the Goodwill bins. The knob didn't come off but if I had one that did I would unscrew it to make it easier to paint.
How to Make a Coffee Table Centerpiece
I found this plain drawer at my local Goodwill and decided it would make a great centerpiece for a coffee table. I decided to paint it white and distress it to give it a farmhouse vintage feel. I love how it turned out.
I grabbed my white chalk paint that I already had and a paint brush and started painting.
Sand down any drips or nicks from the first coat and then paint a second coat.
Finally using 220 grit sandpaper sand the areas where you would naturally see the wear normally. The edges and some areas on the sides and front.
I added a few cute accessories to make it a cute finished coffee table centerpiece.
