    How about an up-cycled drawer filled with mason jars!!!! I’m loving the one filled with vintage books — and your genius idea to put one in a nursery with nursery rhyme books!!

    Have a fabulous day, my friend!

  4. I have a stack of old drawers just waiting for a makeover. Genius ideas!! Xo

  5. I love the cottage-chic drawers! The mildly distressed look is charming. Have you ever tried this with wooden wine crates? They give a chateau-chic accent to the cottage look. They also look great in a wine room or kitchen.

    If your looking for original wooden wine crates for future projects visit Winepine.
