Repurposing ideas!

My latest addiction is/are vintage boxes and drawers…okay so I’m fibbing a bit I’ve had the addiction for a while.  BUT I have two new favorite uses for those darling little sewing  machine drawers you find every now and then.  I started putting the remote controls in them upstairs on our bedside table AND I now use one to hold my makeup in the bathroom {obviously no I don’t wear much make up}.  We have small bathrooms so it sits perfectly above the toilet!

Perfect for remote controls {and of course a Red Box movie}.
















I just painted up 4 little sewing boxes and dropped them off at Stifel & Capra since I got a few requests for them at Lucketts after I showed one in the tour of my home.  I also found these fab old drawers that could be used to hold all kinds of stuff {just dropped off two of those as well at the shop}.

How fun are these lil’ guys















These are done in Arles and Paris Grey















These little rustic guys are adorable with the handle..perfect for mail, stationary, toys and more!!

    Hi there, maybe it was you that waited on me at Lucketts when I bought my brush from you…I am the one that was visiting my daughter, but I live in Washington State..and I had a chair that needs another coat of annie sloan and how to do that since it’s been waxed……anyway I just packed that brush up with me to take it home and use on all my summer projects….I had no idea I was in your booth because I have been following your blog for over a year, bummer I would have liked to have told you that I love your blog!
