Trash to Treasure

My sweet, considerate hunk of a man brought home a drawer that he found being discarded at one of his work sites last week.  I had mentioned to him that I was on the lookout for one to transform into a shelf.

Yesterday he spent most of the morning in his garage shop adding little shelves and something to hang it with and emerged with an AWESOME shelf to hold some of my rubber stamps.  I am so excited!  After he hung it I started looking around my studio gathering some of my favorite stamps to display.  This lead me to think that maybe I should put stamps on there that I would use the most in the coming weeks - Halloween is right around the corner and I collect all things Halloween.  I think I will change this little display with the seasons or various holidays but I wanted to share with you how it came to be and what it looks like now.


So, there it is at this point.  Thanks for looking!

The shelf turned out great and your stamps are so fun. They really set the Halloween mood!

great idea! I don't really have a great picture on my gathered clutch tute, but yes, there is a divider pocket as well as a credit card holder. I'll get the pics up of the interior.
