For the first day of the hop, I decided to share a set of altered
drawers I put together for Christmas using the "Christmas Made"
holiday stack by DCWV.
"Christmas Drawers": Altered Drawers Using DCWV "Christmas Made" Holiday Stack
I started by painting the unfinished wood with "Moss Green"
Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze. LOVE these paints because they
are loaded with micah that makes them oh sooooo shiny!!!!
Then, I just used a a ton of Mod Podge (matte chosen here) and
papers and got to work!!!
Here's a look at the finished piece:
Isn't it amazing?!? And you would be surprised at how little time and effort this takes and would make such a FAB-U-LOUS gift!!!!! Here are some other pics:
The "drawer pulls" are actually buttons by "The Girl's Paperie"
that I coated with Gold Leafing.... LOVE the way they turned
out!!!! I also used various embellies by Tim Holtz (metal corners
on top of box), Jolees (bow on top), Webster's Pages "Merry
Christmas" Sticker, and metal charm piece by Recollections.
Now for the "good stuff"!!!!!
