Pretty Chest of Drawers

The July challenge has just started over at Altered Eclectics...such a delight to be on the design team over there, such a talented bunch of teamies, so do pop over for a lookie..

My Dt project this month is this little chest of drawers....made from mdf, just perfect to alter.

After sealing the mdf with gesso,I then painted it twice in cream acrylic paint, leaving it to dry overnight.

I sorted through my scrap paper box for some matching papers and I found enough to cover the chest completely, I love these, they are so pretty.
I glued the knobs back on to the drawers.

To decorate I used a small picture frame and added some mirri card to make a mirror.
Then I sorted through some beads so I could make the perfume bottles....I found a lovely pearly glass barrel bead that was perfect to make a vase for the rose.
Added some string pearls,some silver chain and a key...and that fab blingy letter "B"
Hope you pop on over and join in with our challenge this month, you can find it here at....
