Turn an old industrial metal drawer into something, well, something pretty fab!


     While out shopping, as I tend to do on occasion, at White Elephant Antiques one of my favorite antique haunts down in Dallas, I came across this old metal drawer.  The color is perfect.  It's exactly the color of old french zinc that is so gorgeous.  But let's face it, it's not exactly spectacular here...


Well it sat around for weeks because I had no particular place for it, and I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it.  But I knew it had potential, just needed a little somethin, somethin...so for a few buckaroos, I had a mirror cut for it...


Once I did that, I decided some wee little candles would be nice...but I'm thinking some large cloches would be amazing as well, or white orchids for the summer...


And now I had a place for it...
