Metal drawers = Chic storage!

Are you addicted to drawers too?
Every single time I head out on a junk hunt, my eye seems to spot um.
And I always buy um!
These old metal drawers are some of the best, first because of the color and
second because of the light dusting of rust.
Good thing about drawers is that they provide some excellent storage capabilities that are chic and hip!
If you've been thinking of re-doing a studio or even a bathroom~ drawers will answer alot of  your organizing issues!
Call all drawers have YOU used drawers in your decorating???

When it comes to planting..........

I love to use the old vintage stuff.....
Espicially if it's rusty!

Rust is always a great  complimentary accent....

espicially when there are already rusted holes in the bottom .....

Green and rust are two of my favorite colors....

rust stains on this old tool tote handle made me buy this piece...

and even though you can't see it here....
trust me , the inside of this is totally rusted out!
What kind of planters are your favorites?

Vintage Egg Prints

These vintage egg prints are one of my favorite pieces to frame. They make a great collection.....
That fits into most any color palette.

Plus they are interesting to look at

and blend nicely into numerous design possibilities.

Not to mention an inexpensive and easy to "do it your self" project.

With Spring right around the corner~ this could be just what you've

been looking for!

Have Fun!
