Upcycled Map Cabinet from Chest of Drawers

Inspire others...share!

Do you like to change things up from time to time? It’s not a new revelation that I enjoy change, especially making things broken and worn new again. Sometimes I begin a little adventure because I have to and other times because I want to. Today is an “I want to” kinda project. You see, this old chest of drawers has been tucked in my sons’ closet for few years and I am relieving it of its hardworking status. It is now time for it to be come a glorified upcycled map cabinet. Yahoo!!

Can you see my vision for this? Well, no worries if not. I’m here to show you my nutty ways. mwahahaha…

When I say this thing was hardworking, I wasn’t kidding. I put this in my boys’ room hoping to help them stay clean and organized. Well…my good intentions went down the drain. All they did was use it to cram it full of junk, so I yanked it out. I have found (as a mother of 6) that the more I created storage places for my kids, the more “stuff” they hang on to. That was NOT my goal was. So, over the years, I’ve removed much of my storage places so they have less storage – less junk, less clutter and more freedom. Freedom to not have a heartache of cleaning up “stuff”.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Back to my upcycled map cabinet project… This chest is made of a basic pine with no bells and whistles. It has much wear and needs some TLC. However, it is at least solid wood, which makes it a perfect candidate. At this point I claim fair game to let my creative side take control. tee hee.

I’ve created a video tutorial for you below so you can see the steps in action. Meanwhile, I’ll take you through my process step by step.

First, I took out the drawers and removed the wooden drawer pulls. No worries. I’m saving them for another project. Once the pulls were off, I began to build up the bottom of the chest to prepare to accept some legs. I felt adding height would not only increase the stature of my desired upcycled map cabinet, but also provide a stance to make it more stable. This chest is kinda lightweight and the legs would add heft.

I dug into my stash to get some 1″x 4″‘s and cut them to length with my miter saw. Then, I used my Kreg Jig to add pocket holes so I could attach them to the bottom of the chest. I love these tools.

I’ve installed the slats installed on the bottom using my drill. Eventually, I’ll be adding legs once the rest of my process is complete.

Next, the drawers on on my list of makeover fun. In order to get to the upcycled map cabinet status, I need to create the visual of many drawers. To do that, I used my circular saw and my Rip Cut jig to make shallow cuts in the drawer front. You can see my demonstration in the video below.

Ripped Drawer Front | prodigalpieces.com

Do you see the shallow cut I made down the length of the drawer? The jig helps my blade stay straight. I could have done the same thing by setting my table saw blade at a shallow depth and then run the drawer over it too. I’m just trying to show you how you don’t need BIG power tools to get it done.

I used wood filler to fill the old drawer pull holes and any dings and dents too. Once cured, I then use my sander to get it ready for the next step…paint.

Also, before I could move on to the next step, I couldn’t let a boogery thing go without taking care of it. The top of the chest had a missing chunk out of the back corner. I knew wood filler wouldn’t hold in there, so I took off the top and cut it down on my table saw. Getting rid of that damage made me feel so much better…aaaahhh.

I used my nailer to reattach the top and the back panel, filled the nail holes with wood filler, sanded, and away we go!

Time to break out more of my favorite tools! Oh yeah…{{happy dance}} My motto is still #toolsoverjewels since I was a teen and this is why. The HomeRight products are so easy to use that they pop up before your very eyes.

In seconds I am able to coat the chest of drawers with my custom color mixed paint. The finish is superb and done in a flash. My video demonstrates how to adjust the tip for different sides, and how to move from your shoulder, not your wrist. In addition, you can always practice your flow and spray on a piece of scrap wood or cardboard. You can see my video tutorial how to set it up HERE in this post.

I let the first coat cure, and then add a second coat. Between coats it is important to clean the sprayer. Just pop the lid on the canister of paint to save it for later, and then clean the rest. It only takes a few minutes of time. Yay!

Last, when my paint is cured, I added apothecary label hardware and the hairpin legs I prepare the chest of drawers for. Meet my new upcycled map chest complete with a fun style.

What is the icing on the cake for me is that when JC (aka. husband) came home he was puzzled at how I got all those drawers in there. I got this done in a day and he was floored. Yeah, baby! {{fist pump action}}

    This is beautiful! If (when) I get the proper tools (my daily excuse) I can’t wait to start painting, upcycling, and creating all the wonderful ideas and works of art I read about on a daily basis. I’m not sure why, but its taking that first step that’s so intimidating for me! Thank you so much for being such a huge inspiration!

    You did that in a DAY??!? I am awed! It turned out GREAT!
    I’m with you on not giving kids too much storage. They think it must be full! …except that it spends more time empty… all over the floor.
    I’m doing a kids closet makeover now. And yes, there will be paint involved. Walls…shelves… After I get the shelves in I’ll get more precise measurements for crates/boxes to fit them, which means yet more painting. Is it safe to spray in the house? Cuz would that ever make painting All Those Little Spaces easier!

    What a fun makeover! I love that you were able to do this in the house with your HomeRight sprayer and tent. I do admire your hardy spirit when you get all bundled up and work in the garage, but I felt better that you could be indoors (’cause that’s where I’d be!). I just got a bookshelf that is a little too brown for my taste, would love to paint it to look good in the kitchen.

    Great Idea! I would use the sprayer on my next project, a table with 2 leaves and 6 chairs 🙂

    Really cute idea. Making the drawers look like map drawers was a stroke of genius!

      Woot! It’s one of my favorite ways to dress up boring furniture. This isn’t my first time, but I think one of my favorites. Thanks!

    I really like this project!!
    If I had a sprayer, I would prob paint a dresser that I’m turning into a kitchen island.

      Thank you, Sam. I had fun mixing up that color. I think it’s one of my top 5 faves.

    I would have never thought to do this. It turned out beautiful! I have some larger pieces of furniture to refinish and a sprayer would definitely make it easier!

      I’m so glad you like it, Kelsey. Yes, you will LOVE this sprayer! 😀

    I love the look of vintage map cabinets, but their prices are a little out of reach. I would love to try making a ‘faux’ one and would love to win the tools to help me do it right!

      You are telling me. These are fun to do too!
