Ta Da, I actually finished a project.....!

My version of a distressed supply cubby....

I like how the gesso doesn't quite cover the words on the side...

I can house some of my favorite (and prettiest) supplies..






In other news, I've been waiting very impatiently for these new beauties from French General to hit the stores...

The packaging alone is worth the purchase!




I've been looking at Michael's but finally gave up on them so I tried my local Ben Franklin....and hit the jackpot!
Happy hunting....;).

I love your antiqued cubby Gail and especially all the treasures you have tucked inside of it. I love those labels you scored too.

Your cubby turned out great Gail. You have some cool supplies to fill it with. Now to find room for it? Or do you have "just the right spot". I can see one of these by a babies changing table with supplies and toys. You always do a fine job. Thanks for sharing.
