Over the weekend I was doing a little painting.  A couple of weeks ago I brought this on sale for $10 from Spotlight. I thought it was a good price as it was normally $25.


I knew what I wanted to do with it and this is how it turned out…

I painted it white and then used some sand paper and sanded the edges back to the brown.  I brought a mirror from The Warehouse about 6 months ago and I love it and now I do all my frames to match….

Now my wee draws sit nicely on my scrapping desk with all my ink cubes in it.


Frames, draws, mirrors etc that are like this aren’t cheap to buy but can get the same effect by doing what I do.  The top draw is full of pinecone ink cubes…LOL!!! the rest is full of different colours. 

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the comments, emails and phone calls about the forum. It will take time to build up but 14 registered users isn’t to bad in such a short time.  There are lots of things to come but again everything takes time. 

Thanks again!
