Remember that old and boring drawer that you always look at and feel like throwing away? You can refresh it by covering its knobs with colored fabric. You need to start by cutting square pieces of fabric that are slightly larger than the knobs. This works best on wooden knobs because you’ll use glue to make the fabric stick to them.

The next step is to squeeze the fabric around the knobs to make sure that they are glued there. You can coat the knobs separately after unscrewing them, or you can do it directly on your drawer. Next, trim off any excess fabric and add some more glue if it doesn’t stay put. You might need to repeat this process multiple times. Finally, you now have a more modern drawer that you won’t feel like throwing away when you see it.

For this incredible do it yourself home project you will need an old-fashioned suitcase, four table legs which you’ll need to paint to match the color of the suitcase, four angled top plates, a drill, and some screws. You’ll also need a particleboard which will act as the base of the suitcase, or your new table. Place it inside and cut its corners at a rounded angle. Now, take four top plates and place them on all corners of the suitcase. Drill them with screws that are long enough to penetrate until they reach the particleboard.

Now, take your four table legs and attach them to the top plates by twisting them on. You can also use other kinds of table legs, or even chair legs, like in the picture. Now, you can use your new table for anything but most importantly, for showing what two hands and some inspiration can create out of an old, forgotten object.

That’s all you need to do, and you’ll have a vintage-looking tray which you can use for almost anything.
