Hi my sweet friends!!
You know how much I like go thrift shopping, so today I am going to show you what I did to a wooden jewelry storage I bought some time ago. It was not shabby at all, although I knew I wanted that look for it. But, as most of the time, I buy things and then they sit for quite a while until I finish some of the other million projects I have on hand.
Then some friends and I decided to play Secret Pal, and I thought that would be a beautiful gift for her. My head started to think what to do.
This is how it looked like when I bought it… well, the white knob wasn’t there but I took a picture of the “before” right after having fixed it. Just imagine the picture with a hole on the drawer.
I had no idea how to fix it and I thought that using homemade polymer clay should be ok. At least, when the girls do ornaments with it, they dry hard. I made some clay, took a little piece to make the knob, and left the rest for the girls to play with.
Here’s the knob, not to bad!
The lowest drawer had a missing corner, so I took some more dough from the girls and fixed it as well.
I waited until the dough dried completely, and painted it white with chalk paint.
I wanted something special for my friend, so I designed an ornament with her initials, and decoupaged it on each drawer.
Then I applied clear wax and dark wax to age it a bit.
As I was going to apply some napkins with flowers on it, I tried to print on a napking another design I did. It worked awesome!! You only need to tape all napkin with the sheet below it, to prevent from get stuck inside the printer.
I made several sizes for future projects.
At this point, I cut the napkins and glued them with ModPodge onto the drawer. I also took some brown shoe polish and applied it with a sponge through all the edges.
The last step was to give it two coats of varnish, and it was ready!
I had a great time doing it, although working with napkins was a bit challenging for me. I will keep practicing!
Hope you like it as much as I do!
