A coat of satin polyurethane and a stack of Post-it notes gives new life to this coffee grinder!
This is an old coffee grinder that I picked up for a couple of dollars at a garage sale. It was missing the drawer and had definitely seen better days....

I saw this old coffee grinder at the 127 sale last year. It was missing the drawer, but it was only a couple of dollars. I didn't know what I was going to do with it at the time, but had to get it at that price. Inspiration struck and I found that Post-it notes fit perfectly in the drawer slot. A coat of satin polyurethane and it is ready to take notes!

Take care,
