Hi there, I’m sure you all know by now, that I love these little sets of drawers… I’ve bought quite a few and had fun decorating them. I have two stuck together which I use on my dressing table for ear-ring storage, which works brilliantly. I’ve tried so many different ideas for keeping my quite vast ear-ring collection and this is the best!
So after buying a set of eight more of these drawers I decided to stick some together again… this time in a tower…
So, I stuck 3 together with a strong adhesive (I used UHU) allowed that to dry overnight with weights on top.
Then I started to decorate … I decided to stay in my comfort zone and stick to flowers but used an outline gel (I got mine from Poundland but can’t find it on their web page – it’s great stuff, I have used it quite often) to draw the flowers (after drawing the design in pencil first, you could trace your shapes or maybe stick paper on and go over the outlines in these gel pens :-
Then the whole thing was left to dry, as you can see in the last picture above, I used a craft knife to ‘cut’ through where I had gone over the drawers. I went over the drawer openngs intentionally, I wanted a fluid look of flowers intertwined, if I’d stopped to go over the gaps I would have lost that look.
Now to colour in…
I used felt pens again, and then a light coat of glitter paint.
and that’s them finished (I painted the inside of the drawers with gold acrylic and lined the base with felt.
Bye for now, but back soon,
