Friday's Creation

As I sit here and upload & edit these picutres of what I made this evening, I just realized that infact it is NOT Friday but Saturday... so not that it matters!  I created this tonight from a balsa wood mini dresser that I picked up at JoAnns for $5.  I sanded, sealed, gesso, crackled and then pinked it to get the base color (got all that??) then I used distress inks & chalk to get the brown distressing.  I picked up some purdy K & Company paper for the drawers, stamped some music notes on it for a little extra and then I decopauged it all with some fun vintage stuff from K&Co and The Girl's Paperie that I had.  And of course with the final touches of buttons & bling that I put on everything we have the finished project!  I had a lot of fun making this tonight and it only took me about 3 hours with a break to watch the wicked storm that came through!  I'm happy with it!  Now on to find something to make tomorrow!!
