Elliott and Henry share a room. They are buddies most of the time, but Elliott now has lots of little 'treasures' that Henry can't keep his hands off of. We knew Elliott was going to need a safe place to keep his precious little collection of random objects...and I had my eyes on a sorry looking dresser Michael was using in the basement.
This sad wood cabinet had become a place to store sandpaper. (Michael has quite an impressive assortment of sandpaper which filled the dresser, plus an entire plastic bin.) The top drawer had come apart and the wood was in rough shape. Spiders had made quite a little home inside the furniture, too. Ick!
But I saw potential and wanted to rescue the piece and bring some life back to it. In August we finally began the project and Elliott did most of the work!
