I absolutely love the fun items that Kaiser Craft makes for altering. I decided to use this dresser with a stack of Secret Garden 12 x 12 paper from Graphic 45. This was actually the first piece I made for them with stuff I had on hand while we waited for our dreamy introduction parcels.
I started out by staining the edges of this piece with Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Shabby Shutters.
When it came to the areas of the drawers, I used distress techniques (i.e. roughing up the paper) along the edges to hide my mistakes.
On the top a little bit of bling was added using a daisy chain Dresden border.
Looking at the back in the photos made me realize that more embellishment was needed. I decided to give this little dresser away, so I added the name of the recipient with the coordinating alphabet stickers I received in my first DT kit. (sorry no photo.)
Here you can see that I incorporated the daisy chain a bit here too. Lots of distress stain on the edges too, to add an aged look.
The insides were tricky to cover, I tried several approaches before figuring out the best way to accomplish my goal.
Thank you so much for yet another installment for Graphic 45. I am still in disbelief that I am part of their elite crew!
