I have a 'thing' for little drawers - lots of great pictures on my Pinterest board will attest to that! It's always been my fondest dream to own an old library card catalog and I've searched for years to find one that's affordable. Well, DD#2 called me last week to tell me about one she had seen listed in an online classified. Turns out the gal who was selling it lived only a couple miles away from me so I went to take a look. It wasn't exactly what I'd been dreaming about, but it was in good condition and the price was reasonable, so I bought it and brought it home.
Spent an entire day cleaning, sanding, dismantling the drawer fronts, and painting it red. The next day I reassembled it all and put it up in my studio.
As you can see from this picture, the drawers are made of plastic - just the front piece is wood, so it's not really very old, and I didn't feel the least bit guilty about painting it. When I find the set I've been dreaming about, I figure I can sell this one and upgrade. Now I just need to fill all those little drawers with sewing notions etc.....
I've been looking for a pair of these shoes for a couple years now, and finally found some on ebay. Aren't they perfect for a quilter to wear? And they're amazingly comfortable! Yay!
