Fancy Drawers

Sorry for the wait, but I finally got my gems to finish them off lol so can finally show you all my drawers lol. The drawers are from Ikea - the wooden ones that you have to nail together (TOP TIP make sure that you build it on a firm surface, I started making mine in the living room on the carpet and got incredibly frustrated (understatement there lol) cos it just wouldn't work) Anyways it was eventually put together and then months and months later I got round to decorating them...

I painted it up in white and cerise and then used some paper by Making Memories that is actually a giant sticker sheet so when I punched the flowers out they were already sticky which made things alot less messy lol. And then a week later I added the gems, I wanted 3 different shades of pink which caused the delay lol.

And a close up of the flowers and the three shades of pink gems

Supplies: Gems by Doodlebug, Sticker Paper by Making Memories
Extras: Drawers from Ikea, White & Pink Acrylic Paint, Flower Punch

I would like to enter this project in the following challenge...

For Fun Challenges - Anything Goes

Right that's it for me tonight had to get some pink in after all the green lol but off to get my to-do list done now. Hope you liked the drawers, have got another set in the process of been decorated but the idea I had in my head isn't working so they'll be along when inspiration strikes lol, been busy making mini canvases for presents for some of my friends, they're like the teeny canvas that I made last week (here) so I hope that they'll like them and atleast they're that small that no one can say they haven't got anywhere to put them lol XOX

thank you, yep I love painting and doing little projects like this, my room is slowly getting filled up of canvases and stuff lol. Forgot to take a picture without the gems - really needed them.
The drawers are full of my chipboard letters and shapes, my glitter, gems and mini ink pads.
