I like how cute and compact this set of drawers is. I don't have that exact piece but I did pick up some similar pieces at a thrift store. Until now I had no idea how to repurpose them. I know that now I will use those little drawers for the little odds and ends I have to organize in my art making space. I like how you used so many colours to. The chalk board paint is very clever too.

Where does one find the cabinet, and how big is it?
