Before and After Drawer


I bought this letterpress drawer about two years ago while visiting a friend in Rhode Island. So once I got all the dirt and a few bug bodies out of the cracks I was good to start my project.

I went to my scrap paper stash and started cutting away. I know cutting all the squares for this was a bit crazy but crazy good right? The colors look better in person (my photo stinks!)


Now my letters have a place to call home and I can collect more...now that rocks!
