Twelve Drawers….

These drawers from Ikea  sit upon my desk and hold all sorts of bits n’bobs, they are  perfect for paper clips and staples etc.,

When I first got them I painted them with a paint marker which I loved using!
I then cut some wrapping paper bunting and then using a gold thin pen
drew on some string and then fixed the bunting flags. To finish off I stuck on the little metal plates so I could write what was in each drawer.

Since starting this blog I have been using very pretty coloured papers to decorate and recently decided that these drawers were looking a tad drab.

So I have covered them in the beautiful papers my daughter gave me for my birthday, they are sold for scrapbooking, but they are so pretty it seems a shame to shut them away in a book,  I finished off the drawers with a Gold Pentel Marker 

I did the usual thing cut out the shapes and used PVA to both stick on and topaint over to give a nice finish.

, I roughly coloured in the frame with the gold pen and then used a black ‘write on anything’ pen to write my labels and here it is finished. Do let me know what you think.

Back soon,
Love Rosie
