Giving Well: Project #8- Storage Drawers




Super cute mini wooden dresser! Started out as a pain mini wooden dresser from Michael's for $6 ($3 with my coupon!). First I stamped the drawers using my acrylic Autumn Leaves Swirl stamps. Next I added some paper to the sides using Mod Podge (Basic Grey Romani paper). To personalize it I added her name using the monograms from the same paper line (inking the edges to make the letters pop out a little more). For a final touch I painted each knob a different color to match the paper.

I made this for one of my daycare kids--6 year old girl. She has really long hair and always has cute clips, rubber bands, and ribbons in her hair. I thought this would make a cute storage for all her hair accessories. I love making stuff for little girls. They are sooo fun! Boys are much, much harder to craft for!
