Yikes! So I headed to Walmart for paint, sponges and new hardware. After an amount of time that I will not disclose, this is what I ended up with:
I'm pretty happy with it...for my first time, that is!
I took out the drawer guides and the remainders of the broken drawer to make a bookshelf.
I used a vintage handkerchief to try and draw attention away from the missing drawer corner. It's not as noticeable in reality when one is not zooming in with a fancy camera.
I decorated it with some of my favorite things. At the top, I arranged some of the members of my baby planter collection. I got the idea for this collection from Two Crazy Crafters!Here are a few vintage items I picked up at a recent church yard sale along with a special picture my friend made of us at her bridal shower (in my blonde days!):
This is the Bible my parents bought me when I was two. It is displayed on a vintage dress that I found at an antique store and is guarded by this sweet little angel, Hope. You can read more about her here.
These are some beautiful flowers I brought home from the market last week, along with a picture of my great-grandmother when she was a young girl and a pressed butterfly that my Mom put in the Bible above when I was little.
I really like how it turned out and am excited to tackle something else now! I have a piano that really needs to be done...but not so sure I'm brave enough for that one yet!
