things I love – printing press drawers

March 23, 2011

Printing press drawers as an artful focal point, from the lovely home of Marlise Kast-Meyers (via Decor8).  See the drawer pulls on the right side of each?

While browsing the link party at Savvy Southern Style, this very inspired use for a printing press drawer caught my attention.  Gold Shoe Girl has used the drawer as a shadow box for her collection of seashells.

Along this same theme, the creative Jessica Tennill took a functional approach to transforming a printing press drawer into an organizing tool (to house jewelry), but with a twist, displaying the bangles, earrings and necklaces as an artful collection.

This type of innovative repurposing is what makes blogging so cool for me.  A chance to look at possibilities through a new lens.  The lens where form, function and beauty collide into something just awesome. 

Thanks for reading!

    Love These! I wish they were a little deeper so I could put my salt and pepper shaker collection in one
