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!
