How To Stop Drawers From Pushing Into A Dresser

2 Mins read

I have rescued a gazillion pieces of furniture over the years! Ok, maybe not a gazillion. 

I have learned that with each new piece comes new challenges. While not every piece that you pick up will need fixing there is a good chance you will find something that needs work every now and then. This specific piece has an issue where the drawers push into the dresser. Matt and I have learned a lot from or experience over the years and today I want to share how we fix issues like this one.

Every project Matt and I have done has taught us something new. We have had a ton of failures, but all the failures taught us what to do or not to do next time. Every project brings us a new challenge in figuring out an easy and efficient way to get the job done. 

Here is: How To Stop Drawers From Pushing Into A Dresser.

I have picked up many dressers (and other furniture with drawers) that had drawers that pushed past the “threshold” (for lack of a better term) and into the piece 0f furniture. In the past Matt had came up with different ways to rebuild the drawers or the inside of the piece of furniture to stop it from happing. We knew there had to be an easier way. 

Let me introduce you to these little gems.

These little pieces are the hack!

Use these when you have a drawer that pushes inside the dresser or buffer. Get drawer stops in your toolbox! Not only are they inexpensive, they will also save you so much time and effort in making over pieces like this. 

I like that these are designed just like the antique stops that are in a lot of older pieces. I am only rescuing the older pieces to paint or makeover, so these stops work perfectly every time.

This is how to stop drawers from pushing into a dresser. They are the easiest solution for the problem. They are easy to install and work every time.

Here is a video I shared in the MCD Creative Squad group to show you how easy they are to install.

There is no reason for Matt to rebuild dressers anymore. We always have a stash of the stops on hand. We don’t need fancy tools or to spend  hours going through a ton of added work to fix it.  I LOVE SOLUTIONS AND HACKS LIKE THIS! The fact that I get to share them with you, is even better!
