A few years ago (yes I mean years and probalby about 5 or more !!!!) I bought this .....
Now I know what you're thinking - why did you buy this? Well, I bought it with the intention of improving it's look !!!!!
For over five year's this little drawer unit has sat on my shelf looking at me begging to be turned into something of beauty, and finally the transformation began :-)
First I covered it in some tissue paper from 7 Gypsies.
Then I left it for a week, just to make sure that it was all dry - I used a lot of Decoupatch glue !!!
This week, I routed through my stash to find some vintage type embellishments to make it look pretty.
I used the same Decoupatch glue to stick on the paper embellishments and then used my hot glue gun for the rest. Once it was all dry, I added a little Gold Wax Patina here and there, which finished it off nicely.
Here are the individual drawers
I used all sorts of stuff, most of which I have no idea where it came from lol !!!
Here are a few photos of the finished unit.
I am soooo pleased with how this has turned out. I can't wait to get started on another similar project. I need to source more "junk" as hubby calls it, but that will, of course, be a pleasure to do too!!!
(I haven't got a clue where most of it came from though so it could take a while finding more, if anyone knows of any good online sources of "junk" please let me know)
I'm going to enter this project into the following challenges:
That Crafty Place - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Anything but a Card
Everybody 4 Challenges - Anything Goes
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you like my project as much as I enjoyed making it.
