Graphic 45 - Crafty Storage

Hi All!
Today I thought I'd share my crafty storage solution. Like many of you I have lots of little bottles of Stickles, Liquid Pearls, Alcohol Inks and Embossing Powders and I wanted somewhere to house them, so when I saw a little pine dresser in s charity shop I bought it with the intention of altering it.

First I painted it black and then I decorated it with Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers from my stash that I had been 'hoarding'.

 The actual dresser is about 18 inches high and is hollow underneath, so it left a little space for me to house a mini album which I made to match and be able to list the products I have, the products I want to buy and some images of projects I've made with the products.

I've added plenty of pics below and a Youtube video, which is a little shaky at the start as it was difficult to get the whole cabinet into shot so had to record the first part freehand - but hopefully you will get the gist!

The side of the album with pull chain

Each pocket page is labelled with a little folder inside to write down my supplies and colours.

I added fussy cut elements from the papers, tags, pockets and lifting panels.


Anyway, hope you like it!
Best wishes and bye for now
