Just One More.

Okay, so I didn't finish the table runner or the hat, but I had to sneak this one in. I had been wanting to do this project for a while, but I couldn't find just the right paper for it. I finally came across something I really liked this past weekend, and at 50% off too!

I purchased this mini chest of drawers at Ikea months ago. I thought it would make perfect storage for little sewing notions, and help keep the craft room organized. I have to say that I will never buy one of these again unless it comes assembled. Normally I love putting furniture together (I really do! I'm always to first to offer my help to friends with new Ikea purchases), but there was just so much nailing with this. 72 nails! 72 nails that were slightly too big and didn't want to be nailed in. Let me tell you how glad I am that they included extra nails! Never again. It is the perfect storage for little odds and ends though. When I bought it I knew I was going to eventually cover it. I like the look of wood, but this was just plain and boring. It looked very unfinished.

I used a pad of scrapbooking paper, Urban Prairie by BasicGrey, to cover the little drawers. I plan to eventually cover the outside of the chest, but I will have to get some different paper for the top if I don't want a break in the sheets. These ones are too small.

Much better!
