Drawers, Cubbies and Shadow Boxes

 While on my Beach Vacation to the Oregon Coast,  I found this Old Drawer at a Flea Market.  I loved it for all of it's Layers of chippy paint.

 I brought it home and filled it up with all of my favorite beach souvenirs.  Like this glass float that my boys gave me for mothers day and some drift wood. I brought home so so much drift wood,  I'm still deciding what to craft up with it all. I also found this old green Bottle that had washed ashore.
A picture of the Ocean and some sea shells finish it off.
 Since I'm now a huge fan of Pinterest,  I did a searched on Drawers, Cubbies and Shadow Boxes,  And here are a few of my favorites that I found.
{BTW are you all on Pinterest?  You'll love it.  It is a website full of Pictures of Home inspirations, crafts, recipes, fashion and Art.  You get to pin all of your favorite pictures onto your own Pin board.  Plus the coolest part of all, it takes you to the site where the picture came from.  There may even be some pictures from your own blog already on there.}
