Sewing machine drawer redo

How do you deal with an ice storm that keeps you at home for a few days?  In my case it was just what I needed to get a few projects done that I've been wanting to try.
Over the years I have accumulated several sewing machines - some in such poor shape that all that could be salvaged were the drawers.

I went to one of my favorite sites,  The Graphics Fairy, and downloaded the "French fabric" and "Paris letter" in reverse. I used the Modge Podge method to transfer the graphics onto a sewing machine drawer that I had painted with Home Decor's White Adirondack chalk paint.  It has been my go-to color for a lot of projects.  It goes on smooth and covers everything!  Easy cleanup too.

 I had some pretty scrapbook paper that I lined the inside with.


I had to use a brown fine point Sharpie to fill in where some of the paper rubbed completely away, but I'm happy with the results.
