Classy little dresser!

Thank you again for all the lovely comments on my post yesterday xx

A couple of weeks ago I watched a tutorial on how to make a chest out of matchboxes, so I thought I would give it a go.

Unlike the lady in the video I made ALL my matchboxes instead of buying them!

Three quarters of the way through I had a change of heart and decided to make a dresser instead! lol

The basics I followed from the following you tube tutorial
http://artfullymusing.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/video-tutorial-making-chest-out-of.html

So this is what I came up with:





I'm not going to do a step by step of how I did it because I would be here all night and you can click on the link above for details because the instructions work in the same way for the dresser.as they do for the chest.

The back of the dresser was cut with a spellbinder die and coloured with Pebeo silver Gilding Wax

I used papers and images from Kraftyhands Craft Nouveau cd - lots of lovely things on this cd. The embellishment was also from Kraftyhands which originally was brass but I changed it to silver to go with the little dinky handles which are beads I had in my stash.

I also used beads for the feet as I didn't have any proper feet to go on it!

It is a time consuming project because there is lots of drying time to take into account and lots of cutting papers, but I think it was worth the effort.

Till next time ......................
