With that said, I have to tell you a quick, cute story. This precious older man who does my furniture repair is wonderful. Honestly, he can do anything. He's even made those little wooden rollers that are on older pieces and have a habit of getting broken. If it's wood, and needs a professional fix, take it to Mr. Fixit. Well, recently Mr. Fixit's grandson was in the shop and I was telling him how gifted I think his granddad is....and the grandson asked if I knew how old his Granddad was. Soooo, I guessed.......late 70's maybe. No Ma'am. My Grandpa just turned 91 years old. I could not believe it. I take all sorts of furniture pieces to Mr. Fixit.....large tables, chest of drawers, dressers. And, he is always right there to help me unload from the truck and take into his shop. He truly is amazing and the way I hope I can be if I possibly live to be that age. Now, the funny part. I took Mr. Fixit a couple drawers from an old kitchen cupboard (actually the one that Gina, over at TheShabbyCreekCottage bought from me recently). Anyway, this precious 91 year old jewel of a man, smiled a huge smile and said to me, I love it when all these ladies bring me their DRAWERS. I thought that was hysterical. Even at 91...........well, you know.
And so, here are a couple EXTRA DRAWERS that I saved from a piece of furniture.......that I couldn't save. Ya follow that? First I painted inside with a spring yellow and then the outside with a color I mixed with Behr off white from Home Depot and Glidden turquoise. Anyway, it made a gorgeous soft spring turquoise.....kinda Robin's egg blueish color.
Then I brushed on Special Walnut stain by Minwax ,inside and out.
I added a crystal knob......and there ya go............the perfect place for magazines or even files would fit in this one.
The ideas and uses are endless for an extra pair of drawers.
Thanks, ya'll, for stoppin to visit.
