Painted Drawers

Before I forget, look on the right side of this post and look at something new I've added. It is a collage of my home. All you have to do is click on it and you'll be taken to Flickr to view vignettes and maybe some ideas for your own romantic or shabby or cottage decorating. That is a passion of mine - decorating my home.

Drawers are painted! I had to give them about 4 coats of paint after I wiped them out. They were pretty scruffy. I don't know whether to paint roses on them, make a collage out of them or just use them for storage in my craft/sewing room. They are neat. But I do think I'll put paper on the inside bottom. Maybe a wallpaper. That's pretty heavy duty stuff.


  1. Ouuu Miss Connie,
    I can't wait to see the finished drawers! I know they will be beautiful!

    Miss ya too toots,

  8. Connie--
    LOVE the drawers!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. In answer to your question: I am not a recipe follower--so if I see something I think looks good I do my own version of it. That is what is hard about the blog--I have to actually come up with measurements instead of just dumping this and that in!!


  9. Very pretty Connie, I think vintage wall paper would look so pretty in them! Pink crystal knobs would be so pretty!
    Love Ya
