A few rustic old drawers...
Some metal bases welded up by my resident handy man :)
This is my first yardstick project...I had enough drawers to do 3 tables but not enough yardsticks...so I mixed in some salvaged beadboard pieces too.
I am happy with how they turned out.  Perfectly Imperfect...just my style!!

I bought these drawers at a sale a while back.  This was a project on my "to do" list for a while now.  Check another one off the list :)

Pattern or design used: My own design - Laurel Putman...Chipping with Charm
