Mark Back of Drawers When Moving

Category Moving

If you plan to refinish or move a dresser, chest, or any furniture with more than a couple of drawers; an easy way to remember where each drawer goes is mark on the back of the drawer with a marker pen with "A", "B", "C", "D" or "1", "2", "3", "4". On the inside, after removing the drawer write the corresponding letter or number in the opening. This will not show on the outside and will come in handy the next time you have to move the furniture. Some drawers appear to be the same size until you try to replace them and they don't seem to fit.

My son came up with this idea when we moved some dressers that had 2 sizes of drawers.

Oh, definite thumbs up on this. At aged 55, I've moved several times, and this would have been so helpful over the years!

I did the same, but with chalk works wonders, especially when you are tired.

But if you forget, most chests of drawers have the largest drawers at the bottom and they grow smaller as they go up. So if you forget to mark them just get a ruler and measure. Sometimes the difference is small.
