my color-coded printers drawer

i waited all summer until we moved into our new apartment to finally hang my mom's antique printers drawer. 
personally, i think there are really only two ways to go when decorating with one of these: go minimalistic and don't put more than a couple things in it, or load it up. 

obviously you can see which option i've gone for, especially given my affinity for kitsch.

and i guess it also goes without saying that i decided to organize by color. i think it gives a little order to the madness. here it is with all my sewing supplies.

 i like it.  someday i think it would be cool to have each main section be one color. or if everything was just red. yeah, i think i'm going to go for red.


  1. ooh, so pretty! i want one! i like having all the different colors. it would look cool all red though, too. definitely a statement piece.

  2. It looks adorable and perfect! One of my best friends organized her little daughter's bookshelf by color, and it looks similarly amazing.

  3. I love it! I think you should go for all lime green. But I'm also on a lime green kick right now :)

  4. I just love it so much. I do this to my closet and something about the colors set up like that is just so soothing. And if I had a choice, I would do an entire blue section, but I'm just obsessed with blue.

  5. I love the way it looks so much! It's so cool looking. Great job!
