What a bargain!!!


I found this languishing in my local British Heart Foundation shop for the bargain price of £3.80. £3.80!!!! I had to cart it all round town though and believe it, it was bloomin' heavy LOL


The sad thing was though, obviously someone has already altered it and it's still been cast out to the charity shop. Oh well, there loss is my gain!




I think it started off life as just plain wood drawers, probably from somewhere like Ikea. As you can see it's been painted (pink and green, not really my thing!), infact, someone even went to the trouble of screwing little door knobs onto all the drawers!

I covered it with some 12 x 12 papers from Stampin' Up and added a paper flower.


















To finish off the edges where the paper didnt cover I used some ribbon to tidy it up.


Just need to find some stuff to fill it with now, thats the difficult part (obviously! LOL)


:o)
