Jewelry From a Furniture Makeover?!!!

I recently purchased this great chest of drawers for $25 at the Salvation Army...
I love the style of it, but it had seen better days, for sure!
It had great hardware...
This piece was in desperate need of a makeover. So, I painted it with Annie Sloan Old White. 
To make it easier to paint the bottom, I put the chest up on my bar stools...
Back to that great hardware...
one of the drawer pulls was missing! Ugh!
I had these knobs that I had bought at Michael's a while back for $2 each...
The color was perfect and I actually liked them better with the chest once it was painted...


 Now, back to that great hardware, once again...
 I love these antique drawer pulls and it just so happens that my friend, Sue, showed me a necklace she had made using similar drawer pulls. Her necklace was gorgeous, but I figured I'd never make any like it because when would I ever have drawer pulls like that?!!! Little did I know that just a couple of weeks later I would end up with 5 of them!
So, I copied Sue...
I added jump rings where the screws would normally go and attached a chain to the jump rings.
Then using more jump rings, I attached charms to the piece that you would pull...

 This makes such a beautiful and unique piece of art jewelry!
One down...4 to go!
Pin It
