Try It Tuesday~a must see!!!


Hi everyone~I had this cute little chest { by Kaiser} in my stash for a couple of years and thought it was time to do something with it. I used Helmar Decoupage, Helmar 450 Quick Dry, Helmar Zapdots and Authentique/Uncommon.  The hardest part of this project was getting the little chest put together and aligned properly but after that was done, it went together quickly.


I covered the chipboard with Helmar's Decoupage and Authentique.  I sanded the edges and inked them very lightly.  This stage took some time.  Be sure to let each drawer dry completely.


This is a back view. I used the book text for this and loved how it looked with my "made by" stamp.


Inside the little drawers view~


The embellishments from Authentique are adhered with Helmar 450 Quick Dry and Helmar Zapdots! The shiny buttons are by Bazzill Basics and the crocheted flower by my mother in law { a handmade original}!!


This was a fun project to watch it come together ~ but it did take a couple of days to complete.  I let it dry really good after each use of the decoupage.  Hope you enjoyed this  and have a great day!
 See ya soon!!

Connie! This is SO adorable! Beautiful! I have to look that up,. I'd love to buy one for myself. I love the product you used on it too. It turned out sublime. They should use these pics to sell it. Seriously ... because if it's still available, you just sold one for them.

Amazing! This so caught my eye. I am getting ready to do a dresser and just could not settle on an idea of what I wanted to do, until now. Now I can't wait to get started. I know it's a little different, I'll use fabric, but it's the same idea. Thank you so much and I'm looking forward to more great ideas with you.
