Printer’s Proof

Printer’s Proof
Meg from Meg Made Designs wanted a vintage printer’s cabinet.  What she had was a not-so-vintage Ikea bookcase.  Hmmm, same diff, right?  Wrong!  Just kidding, right!  She simply flipped it sideways, added a frame around the front, built a set of doors from scratch, screwed in new feet, and ta-to-the-da: a vintage printer’s cabinet. 
I don’t have a printer’s cabinet, but I DO have a bunch of printer’s blocks and can’t for the life of me figure out a cool way to display them.  They are currently in a bowl.  Please advise.

PS: Hey!  I’m really excited to share this great deal from one of my very favorite clothing sites, eShakti.  $25 off a purchase using the code LINDSEY.

    I was convinced that wasn’t the same article of furniture until I looked at the blog and saw that the drawer/doors are fake…now I get it. Lotsa work!

    eShakti website stinks. I cannot find the pull-down menu to customize anything. Sorry.

    Hmmm, I’ve never had any problems with the website. Maybe try updating your browser, or using a different one. Explorer always seems to give me trouble with everything.

    Explorer is the fru-itts of the dev-ille.

    I don’t remember where I saw it, but someone took printers letters and put a bunch of them on a small round table (coffee table sized) and covered it with a round piece of glass.

    I think you should spell out some fallish word like thanks or thanksgiving or give thanks and set them on a mantle. That reminds me, I really need to do my fall mantle…

    How is that even possibly the same piece of furniture. I’m guffawed! Is that a word? I’m in complete awe of this makeover/redo. Speechless frankly.

    Holy crap.
