I've got a couple of old vintage printers drawers that I display in my livingroom.

The tin handled cups were found at a yard sale.  Not sure what they were originally used for.

This printers drawer is smaller than the usual ones. I bought it at a yard sale for $10.00. Posted: 9:20 pm on April 21st

My husband put sides on it to make a lip and then cut luan plywood to make a top for it that slides on and off. I use it to hold little crafting supplies for cardmaking and scrapbooking. I keep buttons, brads, eyelets, ect. Great for beads too! Posted: 6:05 pm on April 20th
