Opening up to inspiration

I recently saw this shot of old drawers all stacked up on Apartment Therapy.

Their exact use aside, don’t you think they look so…pretty? I love their patina, and the fact that alone they’d be nothing much, but gathered together they look like art. Or, put together another way with a dash of carpentry know-how, you could come up with this:

Pretty lovely looking, isn’t it? (And it’s exact use is exactly clear.) Perhaps some of you are heading to the lake this weekend for an early spring opening, or you are taking advantage of some mild weather and cleaning out the garage or storage shed. Whatever your plans, remember to take another look at the old junk that you come across and think about how you can make it beautiful again. Whatever is old can be new again, right?
