The new year is also when I find myself dreaming up lots of exciting new projects, all of which I have full intention of sharing with you.
However, summer is the season I adore, it's when hubby and I venture out and about more often than we aught, and we really let ourselves go! I admit, it's probably when my post writing time becomes scarce and everyone in the blogosphere gets a little neglected. So here I am, guilty as charged begging you to be patient while I finally get my act together. (To be honest, I sometimes I wonder if I ever will.)
All is not lost however, the sun was shining brightly this morning, so I thought to myself "what a perfect day for shopping". I knew hubby wanted to visit Bunnings (yes my 2nd favourite store) to purchase a couple of things and it's so very close to IKEA (my most favourite store of all) that I managed to twist his arm a little by telling him I only wanted a quick visit to purchase a set of mini drawers. (Mind you we left IKEA with more than just one thing as per the norm!)
These are the drawers (Moppe in Birch plywood AU$29.99) . . . I'm sure you have all seen them before.
Because they will sit in my Billy Bookcase, I shall paint them white. I am also wanting to add shiny gold card holders and tiny brass mushroom knobs, so the finger cut outs have to go! How? Easy peasy . . . I'll just turn the drawers around, how simple a fix is that?
These are the card holders (eBay) and the brass knobs I chose (from Bunnings), which are in keeping with other brass trims I have on the rest of my doll room furniture . . . not exactly the same, but they were an acceptable option when I couldn't find the perfect match.
I will do my best to remember to photograph each stage of this project as it evolves and then show you what I intend them for in the coming week. So stick around if you can . . . there are many more projects in the pipeline. :)
