Well, my guys all went camping this week and I purchased this toolbox from Amazon and it needed a facelift. This is it in the "newbie" stage and "before I got some ideas in my head" stage. I have a theme in my room this year of the seventies and so I found some adorable papers at Hobby Lobby with peace signs, stripes, paisleys and with stickers and letters. I wanted one where all the drawers were all the same size and some of you will get it and some will just say "good grief". I had originally purchased the one with the mini drawers on top and the size drawers you see here on bottom. When it arrived I decided I didn't like it and gave it to my son to use in his wood-shop. So all day yesterday I worked on this one and I had it all done except for one row. I started with the first row and got the papers on but didn't think about putting the labels on until AFTER I had done the first row, UGH!
So, now the question is this, "do I put the labels on and forget about it", or "do I redo the entire row of drawers"? Okay, since I was the one that wanted all the drawers the same size you have probably already figured out the answer to that question. Yes, I am redoing the drawers right after breakfast so it shouldn't take long. I did not use a laminator to do the papers and used a large packing tape dispenser to eliminate some steps and work. The tape works great but don't buy packing tape that is not the invisible kind because it pulls the paper off of the table with static electricity and ruins everything. A few disasters along the way but the finished product looks like this. What do you think? Have you done a cabinet like this and what are your "TIPS AND TRICKS" to decorating one?
Can't wait to get her filled up with goodies!
