Can you all guess what I’m going to do with these drawers? Remember when I was telling you I was able to glean some things from the old 1916 house that was being torn down in our town? I got glass door knobs from all the old doors, I got a bunch of old drawers that I made into under the bed storage….you can see those HERE. I also retrieved some old doors and these drawers.
These drawers were part of a butlers pantry in the old house……I’m questioning their paint color choices, but hey I’m from KY and my boys think they’re just great this color! :0) Go UK! lol
There are 8 drawers in this piece and I’m seeing LOTS of storage!
I can’t believe how well made these things are…just look at that old bead board they used to build this unit…and that’s on the BACK! They sure don’t build things like that any more!
When I pulled these from the old house, they were in pieces…I sat down in the middle of the floor of the old place and started putting them back together with my trusty hammer…..they were grimy, and so was I by the time I got them back together, but I think they’ll be worth the trouble when I’m done with them! :0)
Got any ideas what I should do with them?
Oh…the reason I haven’t posted in a few days is that I was at the dentist’s office for three days straight, so I wasn’t feeling much like posting anything. My hubby is changing jobs so we decided to get some dental work done before our insurance changes over next month. I had a cleaning, a crown and some old fillings replaced…I survived. :0) Going to the dentist has never been my favorite thing to do (except for the smooth feeling you get after a cleaning), but I have to say, I didn’t even feel the shots or anything this week..so that made me a happy girl! I also am lovin’ that my old mercury fillings are getting replaced with the nice white ones. Doesn’t take much to make me happy! lol
Ok…so now guess what I’m going to do with the old bank of drawers!
Blessings and Hugs!
