I found a single drawer at a yard sale for a whole dollar and decided to give it a little makeover to use in my kitchen.
Took the knobs off, gave it a good sanding, and took a damp cloth and cleaned it up.
The White can of spray paint went to town! I sprayed three coats to get it like I wanted. Sanded the knobs down and gave them two coats of gray with a clear sealer.
Remember when I showed you the chair and tote box makeover? I love having that cute little chair as it serves many different purposes. I decided to move the herbs outside on my carport ledge and put them in small flower pots with drainage. Just so you know I was having a horrible time with roots rotting in the mason jars. My cute dollar drawer makeover would now sit in the chair for a while.
But first, I needed to add some cute things to help it look complete. Love this cute little wooden sign. Two of my daughters has this sign on a wall in their in dining room. But, their signs are huge. This was just big enough that I could use it on this chair next to dining room table.
I grabbed a couple of things I had stashed in my she-shed to go into my drawer.
Decided to fill my drawer with a few dishes, white milk glass pitcher and candlestick with bird. I placed cookbooks in the bottom of the drawer to give my cute things some height. The dessert plates in the drawer has already proven to be efficient for me too. So many different ways I can decorate that little drawer in that chair. Just plain and simple but cute. I am already thinking about 4th of July! I've got lots of ideas for this $1 drawer.
As most know I had have my small corner hutch for a while now and that was a huge makeover. If you missed this makeover you can see it at https://creationsbycindyphotography.blogspot.com/2018/04/chair-and-hutch-makeover-brownies-and.html
Gave the top of hutch a small basket of green sprigs I've had for years and just a touch of green vine.
All the dishes displayed belong to my Grandmother and Motherinlove whom both are walking the streets of gold with the Lord.
The Blue Onion canisters belonged to my Motherinlove. As you can see the sugar dish has a different lid. The original one was missing so I improvised. I have been looking for a replacement but no luck yet.
All the blue and white place settings shown belonged to my grandmother including the cute blue jay.
Since I have two shelves at the bottom of the hutch with a door this gave me a chance to store a few dishes. I love these blue and white dishes and more so since they are heirlooms. I have more of her dishes in my she-shed.
The blue and dishes stored on the bottom shelf are just a few pieces that I bought a long time ago while out of town for a weekend. We came across a 50 plus family yard sale and I heard the word "STOP"! YES! I am a fan of blue and white dishes.
I am very happy with how my hutch turned out and I love it that I can showcase a few pieces of my favorite heirlooms. I have several things that I will share with you when I can that belonged to my grandparents and even my great-grandparents. I am such a sentimental fuzzy gal about this kind of stuff.
And I can't do a post without showing you this sweet girl today. She is already two weeks old! Ooh, I could just kiss her sweet lips off!
I would like to leave this with you today. "Always Stay Humble and Kind".
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
