Junk Drawers FEATURED....
Garage Sale coming soon ...
do you think people coming to our garage sale will pay me to haul off our junk if it is in pretty drawers ?
Found three boxes at the Wednesday 25¢ Sale at Finds Thrift ... not really a drawer, but they will work. Saved me making them! After I painted my mirror ... had paint left, so painted the drawers.
(Just had to add a knob ... funky and off to the side ... but cute !)
I bought a Silhouette Cameo stencil cutter with some of my Christmas money and today, I set my mind to try to learn how to use it. I had tried to cut stencils before ... did research, but I was not getting it ! Finally called Support and was able to cut a stencil. I wanted something simple ... so chose JUNK drawer.
I wanted to do a sign like Angie at Knick of Time does, but that is a little bit complicated. Check out her signs ... love them and she sells some of them. I will learn how to do that too.
I had some just regular household clear contact paper, so that is what I used. It worked ...
I used both the positive and the negative parts of the stencil
Using just the individual letters; I dry-brushed white over them, letting the green show. The white letters were done with the stencil. Was able to use them a couple of times. The paper was pretty thin and flimsy, but the more paint I got on it the better it was. I was pretty happy with the results.
I think it made pretty cute Junk drawers. I was not too careful with the paint or the lettering, because ... they are what they are ... junk drawers.
? Would you buy one of my 'junk drawers' full of goodies ?
Thanks for your visit.
Hope you enjoyed my JUNK story.
