Blessing Barrells

At our St. Vincent DePaul, they have "Blessing Barrells" out front that they fill with donated items that they decide they don't want to sell. Most of the time it is just junk, but every once in awhile I find some nice items, like a random old drawer.

I think it probably went to an old work bench. I thought it had a great patina, so I strengthened it up and decided to turn it into a unique collage frame. I tried to balance rustic elements with modern ones to give it a freshness and so it doesn't look "country". Not bad for junk.
