It's so nice to sit down and relax for a second. I have decided that I didn't like the way I have things organized in my studio and now I'm re-redoing! LOL! When I get on a roll, I somehow seem to want to pull the furniture away from the walls, clean the baseboards, sweep, dust, move furniture around...Then I look over at what I originally started on, which is now incomplete, and I'm pooped! LOL!
Anyway...here is the Stacking Book Drawers done. I hope that you like it. I'm going to keep all my receipts, and small things that clutter up my desk in the drawers. There seems to always be those little pieces of paper lying around! You need to keep receipts right...kinda...well...maybe not the ones from the craft stores....They wouldn't fit anyway!!!
Here we go....
I added some embellishments to the top. A Gentleman's Monocle so that he can read his books and a set of keys that open his Library door. Ok, so I'm stretching! LOL!
For a decorative element, I added a bookmark to each side of the middle book drawer.
The Drawers Open...
For the middle and bottom books, I glued the spine to the drawer instead of having the drawer extend out and onto the spine as I did the top book. I stamped the spine with embossing ink, then added Pirate Gold embossing powder and set it by heat embossing. I also added a few brads to give it a little pop. For the top and bottom book I added the awesome new Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue paper to the book covers.
For the drawers to open properly, I added a piece of chipboard to the bottom of the two top boxes. I glued the chip to the bottom of the top book and then glued the top book to the middle book, repeating the process for the middle book to the bottom book. The extra depth from the chip gave the drawers the perfect space to open and shut with ease.
Well, that's it! Hope you like it! Back to cleaning the baseboards!
Have a GREAT WEEKEND!
