Pinterest I knew this is what I would be making....
Unfortunately the link to the tutorial seemed to be broken so I kind of had to make it up as I went along. This is my version. What do you think?
I'm pretty pleased with it. Its just a bog standard storage drawer from IKEA with some paper that I got free from a crafting magazine. I just drew around the front of the each drawer on the back of the paper and then glued it on and painted over it with Modge Podge. There are a few little blemishes but you can't really see them unless you look really closely. I think it just takes practice to make sure there are no air bubbles. I love it!
I got a bit carried away with the whole idea of Modge Podge so also decided to make these....
Here are my versions. I used a mixture of paper and fabric on the pegs which were plain wooden pegs from Waitrose. I'm sure you can probably get them in most pound shops. Again I just drew around the peg on the paper or fabric and then glued it on before sealing it. I read somewhere that if using fabric you should paint it with Modge Podge first and let it dry before using it as this makes it more like paper to use and less likely to fray. It seemed to work pretty well on the pegs doing it this way.
I'm using them to keep small lengths of ribbon tidy in my sewing room
I'm also using them with blue tac to hang up pictures that the children have made. You could also stick magnets on the back and use them on the fridge to hold bits and bobs.
As usual I have also roped in my other half to do the Pinterest challenge. Men should craft too! He choose this project. A bit more masculine than the cake stand I made him complete last month!
and Jon's finished version. Pretty good I would say!
