The Heart String

I needed some new art.
I saw a DIY on this project.
I couldn't find any scrap wood so I bought an old drawer and busted it apart.
I painted it with acrylic  brown paint (fuck using stains they suck)
I used black nails used for building miniature railroads
and red twine I bought off etsy.
