drawer maintenance

I am a sucker for vintage furniture. What I don’t like, is how the drawers are usually squeaky and sad. Vintage or new, here are a few easy, inexpensive ideas help keep your drawers looking and working their best.

Get a wrap on things! Traditionally, wrapping papers from bridal and baby showers were saved to use as drawer liners. Use a measuring tape to measure the dimensions of the drawers of a dresser. Cut the wrapping paper to size and insert into the drawers.

Squeak no more! Rub the side of a candle along the edges of the drawers. Also rub along the drawer runners inside of the chest.

Knobs and Pulls! Switch out boring knobs and pull with ones that have pop and style. i especially love the ones from Anthropologie.
