Re-purposed Dresser Drawer

Sunday, May 17, 2015

It's always fun to re-purpose items in unexpected ways and it makes our homes more interesting.

I recently found an old dresser that was damaged, but the drawers were still in great condition. They are solid wood with an unusual metal handle and just the right amount of patina.

I decided to switch up my tea station and used the drawer as a box/shelf to hold all my tea goodies.
By using this concept, I was able to double the counter space by stacking items on top of each other.

It keeps everything I need for a nice cup of tea all in one place, and I get to display some of my favorite vintage cups. I love adorable cups!

This would also make a great kitchen library for displaying cookbooks or housing dishes or glasses... I'm going to need more drawers.

Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 
Philippians 4:19

Wishing you God's best,
