We found a big dresser drawer at a secondhand shop, cleaned and painted the whole thing, then added feet to the bottom. We customized it for the owner with a few wooden letters, then stuffed the drawer with a big inviting pillow.
drill with a small bit for drilling hole
paint and paintbrush
1 recycled/old drawer (with stable/solid bottom)
4 pieces scrap wood
1 large pillow to fit in drawer
screw-in wood feet (4)
wood craft letters
Remove the handle on the drawer (you will not need to put it back). Place four wood blocks on inside corners of drawer and secure them with wood glue. Place something heavy — like rocks — on top to hold the wood in place while the glue dries. The blocks are needed for the screw-in legs to have something to bite into since the bottom of the drawer maybe too thin and the legs will wobble or poke through the bottom.
Paint the entire drawer and the wood feet, let dry completely and paint second coat if necessary.
