Pretty Organized Charging Station Drawer


***Update: Guest posted this over to Chic on a Shoestring Decorating.***
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Our chargers in the house is a hot mess!  Tangled cords here and there.

So I decided to dedicate the top drawer on our nightstand to be the charging station drawer.
But why don't we take a look back how this drawer looked before it had a makeover.
I do like organizing. period.  But making it "pretty" organized is what I love more, it makes me want to keep it looking like that.

Chalk paint has been used a lot but I haven't used it yet and what a perfect place for me to try that on the drawer.  If I mess up, nobody's gonna see it really.  I bought the same thing that Cassie used for her nightstand but in everlasting white.

Painting was easy, weather is cold so I painted inside and I'm glad that there was no smell to it at all!  After two coats then I have this.
Then thought about adding some bling to it, why not gold polka dots?!
Finally purchased a gold sharpie (affiliate link) which I used to make some polka dots on the drawer.
I know, I know...who would see this? Call me crazy but everytime I see it, it just makes me smile...

You want to know how I did those almost perfect circles?  I used this staedler template (affiliate link) to make that, used a pencil to outline it then shade it with the gold sharpie.
And oh how i love the gold polka dots on it!
A liner to the sides and to the front-inside of the drawer to finish it off and voila! I have a pretty organized charging station drawer!
Thanks for stopping by my dear friends, until then...
