A little set of drawers...re-do...



Hi Everyone, are you enjoying the lovely sunny day, I have been very busy this week, and it's doing me no favours, but, hopefully now I can get a good rest up before the family turn up on Friday....not that I have lots to do for them, but company can sometimes wipe me out...ANYWAYS...thought I would share a re-do I did for Carla this week, this little drawer set has wondered through both our homes, and I just wanted something to do that wasn't 'to much' for me...so here is is...I am quite pleased and she loves it...[till next time..]
Before we started..
And here it is now...all tarted up...
Sanded, painted and waxed, filigree what-its cut in half and hot glued on and the Tonic die set came to the rescue for the numbers, I cut from heavy card a couple of times, layered them up and painted in charcoal chalk paint same as the filigree bits, shame the handles couldn't be changes, but the don't screw on and are stuck fast.....if it ain't broke don't fix it....
Inside the drawers I painted Duck Egg chalk paint..
So there you have it, hope you like...may go see if I can find any challenges to fit it...
Have a lovely evening and see you all soon...
