What would you do?
As for me, I couldn’t pass up these lovely silky oak antique drawers when I saw them at only $5 each.As you can see, I’ve given them a light sanding. Looks like the finish was probably shellac. They were a perfect project for my first look at the new European Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint colour, Arabesque.
And I was right! Just perfect! I painted the interior of the drawers with another of the newer Euro colours – Marzipan. I love the creamy beige tone that pairs perfectly with the Arabesque colour.
Check out my mum’s beautiful roses from her garden. When she brought them around on her work day with me, I knew I had to include them in this little photo shoot!And can you believe this glass conical vase was only $4 at KMart?
And those are my very own vintage pointe shoes from my ballet days …
Here’s a closer look at the Marzipan colour inside the drawers, and another quick and easy project I made using an old frame:
Painted with Arabesque, and distressed for a chippy look, I sealed with MMSMP Tough Coat Sealer to prevent any further chipping.
I then printed a silhouette of ballet pointe shoes onto a vintage dictionary page (A5 size).
I then played around with different possible arrangements for the drawers …
Side by side on a large desk for organisational purposes:Stacked on top of each other – but this doesn’t seem so practical:Probably my favourite combo here:Although I’m imagining these hung on a wall like shelves in a girl’s room …Great space for storing books and other special things!These pretty drawers and frame will be available on my ebay store for pick up in the Brisbane/Logan area.
