I always like these ceramic drawers when I see them at Ishka and the like. They remind me of my friends Susie. And the other day I found this little set at the op shop.
Pretty cute huh? Being true to the whole Ishka/Indian meditative vibe I am using them to store the bits and bobs associated with my oil burner (also an op shop purchase).
This is a great oil burner because it is nice and deep, so the water lasts longer than the candle … insurance against an unexpected fire if (or more accurately when) I forget I have lit the candle and leave it unattended.
When I got these drawers they required a bit of work. The timber was stained a very orange-red colour – yuk! Out came the sander, and then the shellac. And now they are a much better colour.
I am v. happy with the outcome. They add a little bit of personality to my house!
