What to Do with Random Drawers

I dug this cute little drawer out of a Goodwill Outlet bin {surprise!}

Most people would pass up a sad and lonely drawer without it's original furniture to go into, but not me no sir!
It was brown when I found it, sorry I didn't get a "before" photo.

A nice coat of french grey and a little distressing made it purdy.
Now it is display for items during sales!
