* Check it out! This makeover of mine has been published in A Primitive Place Magazine Fall 2012, and also in The Antique Register of Arizona Jan/Feb 2013 (See pages 10 and 47) *
I rescued these 4 dovetailed drawers from an antique vanity desk right before the garbage truck turned the corner. After a light dusting, I painted just the drawer fronts flat interior Lotus Green. When dry, I lightly sanded the corners and rubbed Minwax Rubbing Stain & Finish over the painted finish with a cotton rag.
The storage drawers can now be stacked or slid under furniture, or they also make nice wall shadowboxes for displaying collections.
In one of the drawers, I added a scanned/printed copy of an old (early 1900's) post card photo of a gal churning butter, then cut to fit & attached with dots of glue inside the drawer for displaying butter tools.
