Aren't these the cutest little compartments? Each one is only 2 5/8" x 1 1/2".
Even though they needed some TLC, how could I walk away from them? The entire box isn't much larger than a shoe box.
Unfortunately the missing pulls left holes in most of the drawers.
The solution was to turn the drawers around and start with a fresh slate. Two of the drawers with their original rusty pulls were in decent shape and just needed the ugly crayon marks removed. What was someone thinking? Remnants of the old label on top rubbed right off after I moistened it.
The tiny new handles were made with twisted wire left over from another project. I punched two holes in each drawer, then shaped and bent the wire using jewelry pliers.
I sure hope they hold up to all the use they're going to get.
This makes me think these drawers were originally used to store pharmaceutical labels.
Now they're perfect for holding some of my jewelry making supplies.
A place for everything and everything in its place.
