Faux Suitcase Drawer

Got an old and worn-out looking dresser? Don’t throw it away – instead, give it a makeover!

Now if you can’t think of a good design perhaps this faux suitcase drawer idea would suit your taste. 😉

The more detailed the paintings are, the better. Faux suitcase drawers should look very realistic for it to look really nice. So if you are going to do this project, make sure to create texture to achieve the impression of a real fabric, leather or wooden suitcase. Don’t forget to apply some shadows, and highlights too!
