More Neat Collections…..

After yesterday’s post I came across many more neat ways to use printer’s trays—or type trays—or type drawers.  They are called several different things.  Here is what a printer’s chest of drawers looks like…isn’t it a great piece of furniture?  I would love to have one, paint it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and use it to organize. {Click on each picture for the source.}

LOVE this HUGE one!  And since I have a thing for letters and numbers–this is fun!  Great for my living room re-do inspiration file. I like the couch, like the wagon coffee table, like the curtains, love the……… {you get it!}

May your weekend and July 4th holiday {for my US friends} be filled with fun and great memories!
