First up is a vintage sewing machine drawer that I had purchased sometime last year at an antique store. I thought it would be really fun to hold all my pretty laces that I use to create with. So here we go.
I first began by giving my drawer a coat of white gesso to prime the surface, then once dried, I rubbed the wax from a candle all over the surface and then gave it a coat of Waverly White Chalk Paint. The wax works as a resist and you can then take a piece of sand paper and distress your edges very easily. I then used Blue Ferns Jane's Memoirs paper collection to add to the outside and inside of the drawer.
This is a close up of the front of the drawer and as you can see Reneabouquets store has so many different things to bling up your projects. All the supplies that I used will be listed below as well as there website. I decided to store all my Reneabouquets Laces in this drawer. The photo below is the sides of the drawer.
Now onto the next project. I started off with an old cigar box that I also purchased at the same antique store last year. Gave it a coat of white gesso and then also painted it with Waverly's white chalk paint.
I used the same paper collection from Blue Fern (Jane's Memoirs). I used an old dresser knob for the top of the lid to assist in opening the box. All of the RB Beautiful Board that I used I embossed with bronze powder.
Here is a closeup of the top of the box. The handmade flowers that Reneabouquets store has are gorgeous and come so many yummy colors. I topped them with Diamond Chunky Glitter that you can get at the store as well.This photo is the front of the cigar box and I once again used the beautiful mulberry flowers from the store, the glass vial is filled with Gawdy Girl Diamond Chunky Glitter .
Here is a photo of the inside as well.
I hope you have enjoyed this and were inspired to maybe dress up some of your supply containers. I appreciate you stopping by and have a blessed day !
