Treasure Chest

Hi, Terri here with today's blog post. I like many Mums get lots of little treasures from my children and need somewhere safe to store them. I had some small draws hanging around in my craft room and knew that using Robins Nest product I could make them look pretty.

To create my drawers I used the following Robins Nest items;

Classified Mini Dew Drops
Rosy Chevron Cardstock
Smoky Chevron Cardstock
Dew Dew Glue

Here's how I made them;

As the drawers had been in my craft room for a while it's no surprise that they were an abandoned project hence the partial pain job and the draw knobs having been taken off.

I started by cutting pieces of card to cover the draw fronts, I chose the Smoky chevron and Rosy chevron cardstock.

I also cut card to cover the frame of the drawers and applied them using a hi tack glue.

 I then used a sponge to apply pink ink to the edges of the drawers, this gives more impact and interest.

Next  I used an alcohol marker to colour the frame's edges pink.

I mixed some pink and white acrylic paint to achieve the right colour and painted the drawer knobs.

On the two biggest drawers I added some faux stitching with a pink pen.

I then placed groups of 3 pearl dew drops in the top and bottom corners of the big drawers using Dew Dew glue to fix them in place.

I am so happy with how they turned out.  Thanks for stopping by.
