A new use for Printers Type Drawers

I recently moved my guest room to an upstairs space and was having such a hard time deciding what to do over the bed.


I like the industrial look for this area, but also with a bit of a retro flavor. The opposite wall is covered with old survey maps and so I thought I'd go with a survey theme and tried the idea below. 
But I just was not feeling it.

 So I just popped a map up there and decided to wait until inspiration hit as to what to do for a head board etc.
 While watching the tonight show the other night, it hit me!

See that wall detail, what does it remind you of???

It reminded me of Printer's type drawers. So off to my barn I went, at 10:30 at night, grabbed the 3 drawers I had in my stash, and made me a headboard. 
Industrial, without being too cottage-y. And the surveyor poles are moved to the side, I'm gonna call it done.

 I love a nice simple project.

grooming kit as guest washing supply center
mail box garden tool storage
 It's purpose is immediately clear to you
school lunch trays as desk organizers
 Although not as it was originally intended
slip cover tie substitute
I hope you have enjoyed these very very simple projects

A peek at my shelves and treasures in my newly organized creative space

Once again, inspired by blogger Shabby Vintage Junk, All my goodies are gathered and sorted in clear jars, and various other containers that I had handy.
Instead of labels, if it wasn't abundantly clear what is inside the jars, I hung one object on the jar to represent what it holds.

Some of my favorite little trinkets and goodies live on this shelf too.
I also thinned out my collection of tidbits and you can find these treasures in my Etsy shop.
And a prized rotating bin is put to use, with more treasures, and supplies.
