How To Varnish and Refurbish A Printer Drawer
Refurbished Printer Drawer StepsI'm having so much fun cleaning and painting this old letterpress printer drawer! Sorta makes me feel old now that printshops are getting rid of them and technology have moved beyond a need for as many of them. Im seeing them for sale all over the place .... But that's great for me! Cause it looks adorable on my studio wall :-)

I was excited about this upcycled project. Too excited I’ll admit …. And I had to chuckle when I would show my kids and friends, and be all excited, and their responses would be to look at me and say, “and what do you plan to do with that?” Haha. So, now I’ll show them! This is why I wanted it.[caption id="attachment_1219" align="alignnone" width="627"] How to Clean a Printer drawer[/caption]
I saw a few of these redone on Pinterest and fell in love with the idea. My first job was in a print shop over 20 years ago. I continued doing graphic design after leaving that job, so printing has been part of my life for more than half of it. When I found this gem on a local garage sale website for $20 I ran over to grab it that night. I couldn’t wait to have a place to display my first embossing die from my graphic design studio that is currently celebrating it's 20th Anniversary.[caption id="attachment_1183" align="alignnone" width="1024"] Dirty Printer Tray[/caption]
