On the way home I suggested we drive slowly past and check out what had been discarded and left in the gutter. Not one, but two kitchen cabinet drawers were abandoned on the roadside!

The drawer front unscrewed easily from the box frame. I put on a couple of coats of paint, first a creamy taupe followed by mustard yellow. After a little distressing and a smidge of rubbed on stain I applied a beehive graphic and the words "Lavender Honey" in French.
