I came across a site where someone had created a chest of drawers out of matchboxes and I fell in love! A quick trip to the store to purchase some kitchen matches and I was ready to start altering! I lined all the boxes with the same paper as what is on the front of the drawer, added some locks and keys for pulls, a bit of gathered satin black ribbon for the bottom, a few left over wooden knobs painted black, the tim holtz swirl die done on grungepaper and stained with this distress stains and to add a bit of shimmer I sprayed them with my homemade misters, to finish it a few metal corners. I love the way this turned out!
Here is a side view of this chest of drawers with the drawer pulled out a bit. I am planning on using this to store some embellishments! Who would of known a few pieces of foam board (for the sides, bottom, back and top) and kitchen matchboxes could be so beautiful?
