So....my hubby recently went to a household auction with his buddy. He bought several gardening items and a grease gun, and tooly type things for his farmer shop. At the sale, they just threw all of the small goodies into a used, old drawer. The drawer laid inside the garage for a few days, and I'd notice it everytime that I loaded up Aubrie into the van.
Finally, one day I asked Andy what he was going to do with that drawer.....his response - "Oh, just put it out in the burn pile." (remember we live on a large acreage, and in the back pasture, we have a brush pile where we throw all of our branches, and things like this drawer that will burn) I asked him if I could salvage it for a shelf....and well, yeah, why wouldn't he let me??? I had already tested it to see if my stamp cases would fit in it, and they certainly did!!!
So, he and his buddy spray painted it for me. I knew that they grease spot on the back wouldn't probably take the paint, and that was quite alright. I had plans for that part anyway. Turns out, after they painted and painted, it wouldn't really take paint anywhere - which I was completely fine with - I'm a antique lover - so things that are dinged up a bit, I'm good with!!!
But, next came the hard part - which paper to line the back with???
After some input from friends, I went with the blue pattern. Since it was going on a red wall, I thought that it would POP a bit more. Turns out, you won't see much of it anyway!!!
I used some Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, and the DSP comes from the Afternoon Daydream Simply Scrappin' kit (love this kit!) I also used some of the stickers in that kit on the divider shelf. I thought it jazzed it up a bit!
And I must add, those Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets made this task a BREEZE!
Here it is hung and ready to fill!!!
It didn't take me long to fill it - and it still didn't hold all of my stamp collection! UGH! I need another drawer!!!
Here's how it works into my craft room - and this is real life - a mess! Yet, cleaner than normal.....maybe someday I'll have the ultimate craft room! Maybe.
