Button Stash!

Check out my button stash...

This set of drawers originally belonged to my hubby's grandma.  When they came to me, the casing around the drawers was a funny brown colour with big marks all over it from where other things had been sitting.  I sanded it all back and resprayed it with red enamel.  I sorted all the buttons into colour groups - there are some amazing old buttons in there!

I love my button drawers!  I sorted some of my own buttons into them too but unfortunately (or not!) I have waaaay too many buttons to fit them all in.  I shall need to find some other way of storing my extra buttons - I am thinking, a big glass jar!

Also, do you see the white buttons and the pink paper in the first picture?  I am doing something with those.  Stay tuned!


  1. So funny that just last night I was thinking I had to work on increasing my button stash. I have to say i am a little jealous of yours. :0)

  2. I was playing with my buttons too, just what is it about buttons that make them so much fun? I can recall playing with mom's button box when I was a kid. Still love buttons!
