Adding a Wooden Appliqué

Hello Everyone!   I’m a copy cat too!  When Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions and Debbie @ Debbiedoo’s  added a wooden appliqué  to the front of their cabinet drawer, I knew that I was going to copy them.  Only I didn’t add it to my cabinets, I added it to the front of a table drawer in the kitchen.   


This is what it looked like before adding the appliqué.

It’s amazing that something so little can make a big difference. 


Thanks Kathy and Debbie for the inspiration on this one!

  Charlie and I will be visiting our son this weekend and our plans are to attend some flea markets and antique shops.  I just hope our SUV is big enough for my wish list of things to be on the look out for.  Hopefully, we won’t have to rent a U-Haul……just kidding!   

As always thanks for your visit and hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
