Hey guys! It’s the FINAL day in our 12 Days of Christmas Series! We hope we have helped you deck your halls, on a budget and inspired a few gift ideas! This final one is another fun and easy ornament display!I found these cute ornaments at HomeGoods. I loved them but they were way to heavy for my tree so I came up with these cuties 🙂
I built my own drawers but it would be really cute and even easier if you could snag a few vintage drawers!
I used my 18-volt Airstrike to attach build the box. Attach the shorter boards to the longer boards with 1 1/4″ brad nails and wood glue. If you don’t have a nailer, you can use a hammer and finishing nails.
To finish it, I used one of our favorite distressing techniques! I started with one coat of Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut stain and applied it all over the drawers. I let it sit for 5 minutes then blended it with a clean cloth.
When the paint dried, I used my Ryobi Job Plus (with an 80-grit sanding pad) to distress the drawers. The Vaseline makes this very easy and the paint will peel off where the vaseline was. You can also use sand paper for this part!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Make sure to visit our friends Day 12 projects! One of them is hosting a giveaway today too 🙂
