Lavender Drawers

Hi everyone...welcome back for another scrappy post : )

Today I am sharing a project that I LOVE!!! I altered some drawers using the Chateau Lavender Stack  from DCWV, crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam and some other fab craft products. 

This started out as a naked wood shelving unit & chipboard. I am so thrilled with how this turned out & it looks amazing in my craft room : )

I created some crinkle ribbon flowers & nestled them among some silk flowers I had in my stash. 

I love how the papers look on the drawers themselves & how the metal drawer pulls from Tim Holtz complete the look. 

 And now for the back & side views....

Creating this project was so much fun & how could you not love all that purple goodness..haha. I can't wait to fill the drawers up with some vintage buttons, trims and other lovely embellis. 

You can also see this post over at 3 Girl Jam.

Thanks for stopping by & I hope seeing my altered project will inspire you to work on your own project for your craft or office space. If you do...please let me know as I would love to see photos of what you've created : )

Happy Scrappin!!
