You voted...here it is!

So last month I asked you to comment here on my blog what you thought I should do with this old drawer. I had so many ideas and was delighted with even more that people came up with! You can view the original post here if you want to see all of the great ideas:


I decided to go with the idea of making the drawer into a tray by attaching handles to either end. I only had one handle, so it took awhile to find 2 matching handles that I liked.

I loved the idea that many offered to add decorative wall paper to the bottom. Unfortunately I don't have any and the bottom is actually 2 pieces of wood which makes for a less than flat surface. So I painted it white and added brush nickel finish hardware for a classic cottage style look.

Definitely an improvement from what it was! What do you think?
