This was my daughter's card catalog. When she bought it, it was a mess. She painted it white and got it all organized to hold all of her craft goodies. Over the years it received some wear and tear. When Amber, my daughter died, I inherited the cabinet... Usually it is the other way around, a daughter inherits the mother's things. Anyway, I like to use it. It reminds me of all the things we had in common and all the fun times we had crafting together. I knew I wanted to make some more repairs and maybe give it a makeover. When I saw the new tissue line by Seven Gypsies the idea came to decoupage the cabinet. Two large bottles of Mod Podge later,lots of tearing and wearing of paper, new door hardware from Home Depot and I am ready to show you the new cabinet!
The Old Look
You can see the damage to the bottom of the cabinet and the sort of ugly doors. This damage was here when she bought the cabinet.
Children's crayon marks.. Not my grandson's, of course. Smile. No Truly, they are not due to him!
A Side View
I made all new tags, glued all the drawers again inside and covered the pull outs, as well. I am quite happy with it's new look. I think Amber would approve also.
