I purchased these two metal filing boxes at a yard sale a few months ago. Both of them were a mess on the outside, but the inside of the drawers were spotless!
After painting this single drawer box with Annie Sloan Old Ochre, I taped off a grain sack pattern and stenciled away.
The two drawer box was painted with CeCe Caldwell's Seattle Mist. I cut out two pieces of chalkboard vinyl for the labels, then inserted them into the chippy and rusty drawer pulls. Plenty of room for miscellaneous stuff and junk.
Note card/picture holder made with a large serving fork, small wood rosette, and a vintage clip-on earring.
I had fun making earrings with newish glass buttons and vintage steel buttons.
My next vintage show isn't until mid April, so I decided to list some of them in my Etsy shop.
The old drawer front I bought at an antique show last month makes a perfect base for a door knob coat/accessory hanger. I had just enough bits and pieces of old yardsticks left over for one more single door knob hanger. You can see more of my yardstick boards here, here, and here. I sure miss the days when I could find loads of old yardsticks for $1 each and glass door knobs for not much more than that!!
