Weekend project

Last weekend Miss 13 and I spent some time putting this mini drawer set together to match her newly painted and re-furnished room.

We purchased the little Kaisercraft draws years ago at a craft fair but never got around to doing anything with it. The frame is timber but the little drawers are made from a heavyweight cardboard and it all just slots together really easily.

I think it's designed to use with scrapbooking paper but we used Riley Blakes 'Sugar & Spice' fabric that I'm planning on making a matching quilt out of later. We painted it in 'Tapioca' first before adding the fabric to the top, sides and drawerfronts and giving it a coat of Mod Podge to protect it.... and voila!
Perfect for holding all those girly bits and pieces!

This is what we started with:
and you can find them here.

Until next time....


  1. Looks great! I love mini drawers

  2. Looks fantastic.. what a clever idea...

  3. WOW they look fanastic. I have a teenage daughter and I can imagine the stuff that would go in there!!

  4. I see what you mean Tracy, they look fantastic and will fit in so well with her new room :)


Thanks so much for your comments...... It's nice to know i'm not just talking to myself!
