How To Varnish and Refurbish A Printer Drawer

Refurbished Printer Drawer Steps

I'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 :-)

Cleaning your letterpress printer drawer

This was not a fast project but I am in love with how it came out.

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.

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.

I am a graphic designer by day, so when I need a file to craft something I find it faster to create one in Adobe Illustrator® and use my own SVG. Some projects I do purchase from a few places, including Cricut® Design Space, but mostly do my own thing.

After shoveling, again – we just got another 12" of that fluffy white snow again this year – I fired up my Cricut® since you can only watch so much Netflix. Before Christmas, I bought shirts and Cricut brand glitter & black iron-on vinyl to the make the kids gifts. Needless to say, they ended up in the pile of projects until today. So, when you settle down to craft you can hear me say, We Can Make That together...

Mason Jar Tea Lights

Mason Jars so stinking cute for every home decor thing. Right?? Although, any glass jar will work for this decor item. Most people throw out old pickle jars. Not me. I wash and save them for years before tossing them into recycling. LOL! Until now! Now I can chalk paint them for every holiday. recycled jar christmas tea light using chalk paint and cricut stencil
