Recycled Kitchen Drawers

When we remodeled our kitchen, I saw an opportunity to recycle two old drawers from the kitchen. The boxes were in pretty good shape that it was a shame to throw them out. I said to myself; I can use these! Could this be the symptoms of a hoarder? Never mind that. That's for another story. I took the boxes and sanded them down. My wife helped me prime and paint them that beautiful color brown that I am crazy about. Must be the earth tones from my pallet.

After the boxes were painted and dry, they were ready to go on the road with me. You see these boxes were just the right size for my small prints that people love to buy. They even have the original handle on them for easy carrying. The boxes were finished with my website address on both sides in a nice tan color of course. I don't even need to unpack these boxes when I return home from an art event. The prints just stay right in the box and are always ready to go to the next show. Now Let's Paint!

Here I am sanding the boxes and trying out a print.
