"My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown, but it's silver when it's wet,
And all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet."

Drawer Redo and Giveaway

My dad had something similar to this in his garage and I was eye-balling it one day. He noticed, so the next day, I came home to this little beauty in my garage!

How awesome is that?! I know it doesn't look like much now, but I could absolutely see the potential!

So I took it all apart and cleaned it out back. Just a spray with the hose, and a little rub down with a rag. Nothing too time consuming! ;)

Then it was into the garage for a paint job! I sanded down some really rough, rusty spots, but not all of it and hit it with satin nickle paint on the body and gloss black on the drawer fronts.

Then I moved it into my computer/craft/sewing/play room and put it back together.

Looking good, but not quite finished...

Ah Ha! Lovin' it with the little tags. I started putting some stuff in it, but haven't labeled the drawers yet. I love how it turned out, and even more I love the storage for all my little things! Dad wants it back now! :) I'm planning a craft room that is going to be above my garage, and I think I'm going to stick with black for it, since I can coordinate all used furniture with a quick spray coat of black paint!

Now, on to something else! This little camera strap I made:
I'm going to do a giveaway, and this is the prize! So, if you're interested, become a follower and leave me a comment on this post. If you're already a follower, just leave a comment. (All 8 of you!) I'll run the giveaway for 10 days, so I'll pick a winner on May 14. Good luck!
