A little something I have decorated....

A few months ago I bought a rather nice letter rack off the Internet hoping to do something with it, when it arrived it had been quite heavily varnished so it needed to be sanded down before I could do anything with it well now its finished

The reason I liked it so much is that it has a secret drawer

The drawer can be filled with pens, stamps etc.

I painted the whole thing with Matt blackboard paint and used some of my Laura Ashley papers to cover the shelves both back and front, it took 3 full 12" x 12" sheets. I traced the shelves out by holding a scrap sheet of paper to the back and traced the outline carefully then just trimmed it slightly to get it to the right size. I stuck the papers down with PVA glue, front and back first then the bottom piece. I had used all of the papers in this design so I had to use a piece of Bazzill to line the drawer but it blends nicely with the colours of the papers so it looks OK.

I think it looks quite stylish now just got to decide do I keep it or sell it, what do you think?


  1. Would you be able to get more? Reason I ask is that I'm sure once it goes into the shop more folk will want one - it is fab.
