I went to Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors in Buford GA today, and came home with a few things. I've been wanting a sewing machine drawer for a long time, but those I've found are expensive. Until today.... I found this simple vintage drawer for $12.00.
After cleaning it, I dry brushed it with white acrylic paint. This let part of the dark color show through. Once it dried, I sanded it in a few places. I also added this applique.
This is what it looks like now.
Ah, much better!
I placed some tissue paper inside, and filled it with pumpkins.
I'm loving it!
I also bought some vintage clothespins. They were 10 for $2.00. I put them in a jar and placed them in the laundry room.
I broke one of my favorite cloches this morning.
Guess what I found at the Antique store?
A new cloche for $4.00.
This one is heavier and of thicker glass. I like the swirl pattern.
It sits on my dresser now, but will get moved I'm sure.
For $18.00 I have a vintage sewing machine drawer, a cloche, and 10 clothespins! I think that's a great price.
One other little note....I started on my Christmas shopping today too. So I had a really good day, right by myself.
