...chest of drawers...

Rain…rain…a week end really wet!!
Some days ago I read a post in EMS forum called Desperate Stitcher and I though that I’m desperate because of my DMC thread archive…so I take the most of this rainy days to reorganize my moulinè…
Yesterday I bought a little chest of drawers in its natural state and some transfer (I’m hopeless at painting!!)

This morning, with Alice, I’ve painted the box with green( to make the grass) and blue (to make the sky), this afternoon we’ve applied the transfer on the drawers…I think the result is nice…

I’ve put some separator in each drawers to obtain four glove compartment…so I have 24 space where put back my thread in numeric order…
Yesterday the Calendar, I bought on e-Bay, arrived!!! It’s wonderful…I’ve started stitching the coeur fragile….only a little bit progress…but I have time till the dead line

Your (IKEA?) boxes turned out really cute! What a great idea! :)

That is a really nifty idea since I'm hopeless at painting as well. I'm going to get one of those and organize my threads and buttons collection. Thanks :)

I so love the way you decorated your drawers ! I want a chest like that !!!!

Are you going to kweep your threads as skeins or use bobbins?

My threads are all on bobbins in appropriate boxes, and even if it was boring and time connsuming at first, it's the best think I ever done !
