I've been playing....

When we were in Jubail looking at the shops last Friday I found a brilliant shop... it was packed from floor to ceiling with tat!! You know, the awful plastic clocks made to resemble Mecca, shelves of everything India and China export in a major way... I love those shops, you never know what you are going to find... and I found this little set of drawers... it stands about 8" high by 6" wide and was untreated and really cheap!!
So here it is now... I quite like how it turned out! The papers are BG and I used Adirondale ink dabbers to get the colours on the wood.

I plan to paint my scrap room at home in pale pink and green when I get back so this will blend in nicely!

And its perfect for holding all my mini book closures.....


Ummm, yes, I have quite a few of them... I love them and when I actually find a place that sells them I buy quite a few to keep me going! ;)

  11. Wow Annette - I must come up your way, I am such a sucker for little draw sets.

    You have done a gorgeous job on them too. The little closures have found a perfect home.

    I need to learn how to use those book closures and stock up on some next time I am out of kingdom.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment, it is truly appreciated - sort of confirms that it is more than my Mum and husband that read this thing! :)
