Continuing on with more of my favorite small drawers from around our house ----- Previous posts on drawers may be viewed here and here.
Card catalogs are great for storage.
They hold all of those old CDs that no one listens to any more!
I don't remember where we got our card catalog, but it was not from the University of Utah. I think it was picked up cheap at an antique mall.
I love the next two individual drawers for their character. The top one originally held stove bolts and is made of tin. The front pulls down to access the interior.
The larger drawer on the bottom originally held hasps and screw-eyes in a hardware store. This drawer is tin and wood, and the top opens for access.
To me, they are beautiful enough just for sculpture!
We found this little homemade drawer unit at a yard sale years ago.
The drawers have little compartments -- wonderful for holding 'grandchild' treasures. Wyatt brought to me these little eggs that had fallen to the grass one day from a high-up nest. I asked him if he wanted to take them home, and he said, "No, they are for you for taking good care of us." When he was a little older and in school, I found him doing his homework at my dining room table with this stub of a pencil. I gave him a new pencil, but couldn't throw this old one away. Aaawwwwww!!!!!!!
Excuse the 'grandmother' moment - back to the drawers.
The pulls are made from sawed-off thread spools.
Enough drawers for today -- I'm sure a future post will feature more!
