So. You remember I told you about that drawer I removed from a chest of drawers because of it’s heavily carved flower motif, circa 1980? Well, this is the story of a Chest of Drawers – drawer – that became an ottoman.
In case you don’t remember, here’s the Cottage-style Chest of Drawers I completed last month. I removed that top drawer and replaced it with baskets because I wanted it to have a cottage-y feel and not seem so heavy. A coat of Maison Blanche paint in Vanille and I think I achieved just that.

Believe it or not, my husband and I bought 8 factory carts at an auction, and when we got there, the guy asked us if we wanted 10 NEW drawers–some cedar lined. (It was a furniture factory that went bankrupt.) We took ’em and DL said “what are we going to do with a bunch of drawers?” Well, here’s one answer!

We want to some factory carts! Let us know if you ever come across some more. Thanks Kirby!
That would also be a really cute dog/cat bed if you used a fluffy cushion instead!
Jamie Lott says
It sure would! 😉
You’re so creative and make such lovely items – very glad I found your blog! <3
