Lessology Challenge 13...

http://lessology.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/lessology-challenge-13-chest-of-drawers.html

Here is my entry for this challenge.

I purchased for $1 the set of drawers from a local opshop. After removing the drawer knobs I sanded the previous paints colours off and then applied fresh paint in pink followed by off white.

I then measured and cut to fit some lovely paper I have had just waiting for the right project. I added some adahesive pink butterfly tape which I got in a bargain bin at Paperfific..wish I had more of it!

Then I sanded the edges here and there to reveal some of the pink underpaint for a shabby worn look and inked here and there. Then I modge podged...(first time for me!)

I formed some new knobs from a bunch of beads on wire I have been using over a few months and glued and wired these into each drawer.

Then I added kindy glitz here and there to lift the project, some old lace, flowers from my stash and little pearls.

The finishing touch is a lovely ceramic bird that my friend Leanne gave me.....I just love this. I was going to give the drawers away but I am keeping them and will use them in my craft space.

Thanks to the Lessology team for another great challenge!




 ps..dont you just love my washing hanging in the background..lol...craft comes first!
