Something for the Curious Guest

When you have guests stay at your house, you want everything to be perfect.  You go around the house and dust, and clean, and plump your pillows.  Sometimes, you even quickly jam things into drawers where they don't even belong have to tuck things neatly away and out of sight at the last minute.  You just want it to look welcoming and fresh.

Well, I was going through some of the beautiful graphics on the Graphics Fairy, and came across this sweet little clip art piece of a bundle of love letters.  I had to find a place to use it!  So, I went up to the pink guest room and looked around.  This is a very romantic room and it would be the perfect place for a bundle of love letters . . . 
I thought about this little table I recently painted and absentmindedly opened the drawer.
 Ah-ha!  Very, very ugly.  What if a guest got curious and opened that drawer?  It's still the same old yellow color it was when I bought it at an antique store.  So . . . why not paint the inside and make it a pleasant surprise for a curious guest?  
What a pretty little surprise!

Ya, I like this too, very clever! I need to get over to the Graphics Fairy more often, you've created some fun things with their inspiration.

I'm going to steal your idea! I hope you don't mind. I'm working on a nightstand right now, have painted and stenciled it and am planning to put a few graphics on it from Graphics Fairy - now I'm planning a surprise inside, too! Love this.

YOU COULD MAKE THAT IS ON FACEBOOK!
