Since my friend passed away my husband has helped to fill the void by doing things with me that she would have done…like looking for bargains. I appreciate his thoughtfulness so much.

DSCF8700He went with me to some yard sales a few weeks ago and we came across this little gem. It had great bones and the price was right!

As we drove away I told him how much I loved the little drawer.

Hubby: Did she say that was where she kept her stash?
Me: (One eyebrow went up and I looked at him cross-eyed.) Uh, no. She said that is where she stashed the remote so the kids couldn’t find it.

Yep, me thinks my hubby needs his ears checked.

After a good cleaning and sanding I painted it white. White seems to be my go-to, but it’s a great base for several finishes and besides, I like it.

But then there was that drawer. (There was no stash…I checked. 😉 )The whole project had been such a no-brainer that I wanted to do a little more. I had just finished a project that used the cover of a book and the pages inside were just sitting there waiting for me to notice them. The book was an old Emily Post etiquette book and the pages were pretty hilarious. I picked a couple and decoupaged them into the bottom of the drawer. I love that drawer even more now!

Enjoy!
