    Very nice and I agree about leaving the remaining drawers brown.

    I love it - that is a whole new look - love your fabric choice - makes me want to go a flea market buy old furniture and spruce it up like you did. Great job.

    Very clever recycling. I may steal your idea.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Great idea! And I love the drawer covers. I bet it looks great in your sewing space!

    What a delight! I need to do something like that. I hate regular ironing boards and like "table top" ironing spaces. Yours look great.

    Love it! I did this with a triple dresser. Don't you love all the extra room your big board gives you? I love how you covered the drawers with fabric. Nice touch.
