The blog line up for today (June 18th) includes:

Gloria - YOU ARE HERE

I used Graphic 45 A Ladies' Diary papers and some amazing May Arts ribbon to decorate and alter a wood dresser. My inspiration was my Graphic 45 teammate, Arlene who created a dresser using the Little Darlings collection. See Arlene's project HERE! I love her project and wanted to make a dresser with a darker color palette.

This wood dresser is about 10 inches tall and is one of those simple pine items that you can purchase for a few dollars at any craft store. But look at it now!


I wanted to create a Victorian-inspired piece with black accents. The floral paper (Focal Point) has beautiful pastel flowers on a black background. Perfect!


Before I started the project, I used a heat tool to soften the glue on the small, wood knobs that were attached to each drawer. I pulled the knobs off and sanded the entire dresser. Then, I coated the dresser with Gesso and two coats of black acrylic paint (Making Memories Asphalt).


I painted the inside of the drawers, then lined them with paper. In the "old days" we used to line our dressers with pretty newspapers or magazine pages. I remember my mom lining all the dressers and all the kitchen drawers and shelves. (Ok, the old days were the 1970s, but we were "country people" and my parents grew up during the Great Depression!)


When you add this many coats of paint, you need to make sure that the drawers can still slide in and out. They can get a bit "stiff" and even stick. (Trust me!)


I added a sticker from the A Ladies' Diary collection to the top of the dresser. To tell the truth, I am covering a dent that I made trying to un-stick the drawer! Once each drawer was covered with paper, I glued a Graphic 45 Metal Button Staples to each drawer front.

I painted each metal item with a thin coat of Gesso, then dry brushed the items with some black paint. Once everything was completely dry, I sanded a bit of the paint and Gesso off to reveal the metal. To attach the drawer pulls, I used pliers to pry the brad backing off the Graphic 45 button staples, then used a strong glue to attach them to the drawers.


To attach the paper to the outside of the dresser, I used a gel medium (Liquitex Matte Gel). I painted a thin coat of the gel medium directly onto the wood and added my paper. The gel dries a bit more slowly than other glues so there is time to make sure the paper is in place. Once I had the paper the way I wanted, I used a brayer to smooth it down. The result is PERFECT. No air bubbles, no buckling, the paper does not get wet or sticky.


For this side of the dresser, I created a rolled ribbon flower from May Arts black silk ribbon, then added a bow and a large pearl. I created a "fashion plate" from one of the Graphic 45 chipboard elements and some of the paper and stickers.

I wanted to decorate all sides of the dresser, but did not want to "over do it." I really want to use this on my scrap desk to hold small items, so it must be useful as well as pretty.


For this side I painted a Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Door Plate Staples and glued it to the dresser. I used micro tip scissors to fussy cut the lady and used foam tape to pop her off the metal. When fussy cutting, if you make a bit of a mistake, rub the edges with ink to mask the error!

Here is the back of the dresser. I used the "newsprint" paper to cover this area to make it look more "authentic."


For the top of my dresser I created a mini gift box using a Spellbinders die template. I tied some pretty May Arts green wrinkle ribbon to the box. I added a doily and a pen nib. But my favorite part is the tiny "lady's diary" that I made!


I cut two pieces of chipboard 2 1/5 x 1 1/5 inches and covered them with paper. I inked all the edges with black ink. For the cover, I added a Graphic 45 chipboard element and two of the Graphic Stamped Metal Brads.


For the inside, I trimmed some lined paper to 2 1/2 x 3 inches and folded them in half. I glued the pages together and attached them to the diary covers. I used some tissue tape to bind the spine of the diary. I added a bookmark by trimming a bit of thin May Arts Champagne silk ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my project and little tutorial.

  173. Gloria, this project is wonderful. Who wouldn't love to have such a beautiful dresser to hold valuable supplies. The little journal is pretty too. Thanks for the inspiration.

  174. Breathtaking! I can't believe the amount of work that went into the design and creation of the mini "bureau". Gorgeous! Gorgeous! I appreciate the detailed pix and explanations. The book is also a work of art.

  176. This is a breathtaking design. I know that it is for your work desk but I can see a little girl adoring it for her doll house & dressup. Thanks for sharing it.

  181. What a great job! I'm really impressed and thinking about doing this project (not as well) for a Christmas present for my sister. What a great gift it would be. I'd make it for me, but I'd lose it on my work table for sure! Thanks for sharing this wonderful project with us
