The Blue Sewing Drawer

If you have seen my recent posts, you have seen where I found a bargain in this lovely vintage sewing drawer. 

I hinted that I might lighten it, and today was the day!
I used ASCP in Louis Blue, 1 coat

I removed the drawer pull, and painted it white with acryllic paint.  I had these two appliques which I also painted white, and glued to each side.  I left the grooves on the front of the drawer dark for some dimension.

I didn't distress it or add any wax to it, just one coat of paint.

 This bunch of roses came from Kirkland's several years ago.  The large silky rosette is a piece of ribbon that I just gathered up to resemble a rose, add a doily, and there you have it. 

I used Tacky Glue to adhere the appliques.  Very simple update for this drawer, but it made a huge difference.  

 You will be seeing a lot of this little drawer.  I love it and it was such a great bargain at only $7.99.

My white drawer is shown below.  I like the appliques to give them some texture.   Both of these were purchased at the same place, but the one I painted white was $12.00.

Do you have any old sewing machine drawers?  They are lots of fun to use in your decor.
