Desk Drawer Project

I picked up an old desk drawer for free at a yard sale last weekend, and as soon as I saw it, I knew something could be made from it.

So I decided to make it into a shelf…


I painted and distressed the edges and, after about half a dozen nail holes in the wall, finally got it hung straight! (isn’t that SUCH a pain??!)


These are my Amish Grandfather’s old German prayer books that I bought at an auction after he died a few years ago. They are a TREASURE!


And, on the slightly silly side, guess what little love’s latest obsession is??


That’s right…STICKERS! (and they are everywhere!)

  2. What a cutie! Kids love stickers – and to this day, I do, too! What a clever wall display…it reminded me that I have a old drawer around here somewhere (that I bought a couple of years ago)…I need to find it and put it to good use! Yours looks so pretty!

  3. HI Aimee, oh my word, i just never know what’s going to be next! YOU ARE AMAZING! You could write a book on creative ways to use everyday objects! I have some bad news…I won’t be able to make it to your get together tomorrow! (boo-hoo). Our car is still in the garage, (get me OUT of here) and also we have a last minute costume fitting for the Anne of Green Gables production. I’m sorry to let you know so last minute. Please say a big hello to all the ladies! J.
