What started my thinking was an idea in the most recent Better Homes & Gardens. They suggested using lace tacked around the inside of the drawer to hold certain items upright and in place. It was so pretty - I pulled out the supplies.
This lace was made by my Memee's mother! In between, I used simple thumbtacks and then hot glued buttons on to make them look prettier!
I grouped a bunch of small seldom-used items into a canning jar at the back.
I hung a ribbon at the front to clip hair barettes and clips onto.
Then, for my makeup - I remembered this old silver butter dish that I got a few months ago at a thrift store. It was black, but I polished it and it is such a pretty addition to my drawer!
You may have noticed that I changed my Scripture verse at the left to Deuteronomy 6:5-9. I've had this passage on my mind a lot lately and am making an effort of incorporating Scripture more into our daily lives. So, I wrote out two verses on a card and attached them to the top of the butter dish with a ribbon. This morning, I took the lid off and read it while I was getting ready for the day...I love these words.
"Do not let your adorning be external - the braiding of hair, the wearing of gold, or the putting on of clothing - but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious." 1 Peter 3:3-4, ESV
Here is the finished product (note: I did move some things out of the drawer that were not being used very frequently so as to tidy up the inside even more) :
Best of all - I stuck to my spend-nothing to fix it up challenge! Amount spent: zero!
