… and I am another year older (yes I know it comes to us all!) Did I have a good time I hear you ask, well yes actually I did, thanks. I got a little messy and put together a set of drawers that my best pal sent me, I seem to have had them for quite a while now and thought it was about time they took on the correct form rather than being flat packed! You can see what they look like in the “bare” form over at Gina’s Designs.
As I said, the pieces come flat packed and you decorate them how you like, so I got out the Gesso and paint and set about turning the wood bits blue. Once that was set aside to dry I assembled the drawers, I cheated a little by using some plain pink card-stock for the sides and backs (well you don’t see them do you 🙂 ) I then used some patterned papers from Fancy Pants to decorate the fronts of the drawers as this matches with my Desk organiser that I made some time back.
Here is the finished article:
Now all I need to do is sort out what I am going to put in it – don’t think that will take too long do you ?
