    LOVE LOVE LOVE the old, antique brass that hasn’t been lacquered and been allowed to age. My house is full of the shiny lacquered brass so popular in the 1980’s and I’m learning how to live with it by marrying it with the older stuff and mixing some metals. Can’t wait to see how your transformed the containers and the finished look of the closet!

      Packing tape was my secret! It went on perfectly where the drawers slide in and out and you cannot tell. Perfect to keep the plastic from scratching. ; ) XOXO!
