    Default My baby is 14 today! ANTIQUE TYPE CASE DRAWER POST 6

    I can't believe I am a mom to a 14 year old! Anthony is my oldest and the one who I never post pages on cause he always runs from me when I have my camera. Today for his birthday we went to the mall and I got him a new skateboard but I told him he HAD to let me take pics of him. I just took a snapshot real quick but this weekend I am going to the skate park with him and taking my time to get some good shots. Finally I can do a Anthony page.

    I agree, that's a great pic. He looks like he's a handsome young man. My son is not far behind yours..he'll be 12 this year.

    Aww, great pic and happy belated birthday to him. Mine is only 2 and I feel like I want to slow down time. I hope you share some of the ones you get this weekend.

    Oh and I haven't seen a shot of Cain (sorry if it ispelled wrong) recently and I know he is changing every day. We need some updated shots!

    Default Antique type case drawer Project in progress

    I JUST ADDED THIS POST TO THE WRONG SPOT! TOO LAZY TO DO IT ALL OVER SO NOW IT'S HERE LOL


    I saw this idea on Ali edwards blog where she used an old type case drawer and filled it with photography. These are often used for shadowboxes but I loved how it looked filled with pictures. I am still working on taking more pictures to fill it. In the real skinny boxes I am going to put all our names going down sideways and then I might add little embellishments as well. The top drawer handle will say our family. I can't wait till it is done and I can hang it in my hallway. I went to 4 antique stores to hunt this down. The only one I could find had numbers/letters on it in marker so I bought some black paint and distressed it myself using black paint and water. Here are the before and after pics as well as the blue pics I took of all my kiddos to put in it.

    very cool! my parents have an antique type case drawer with stuff in it, like a shadow box like you said. i think it was originally from my grandpa, who was a printer, and it has printing press letters for my mom and her siblings initials...and some other printing press things...but also some random stuff. i never thought to use it for pics...cool!!!

    Awesome pic of Anthony!! That's great that he's going to let u take pictures of him.

    That type case drawer is awesome. Great job distressing it and making it your own.
    You totally inspire me.

    How much do those type case drawers typically go for at antique stores?
