New little cabinet, new little project, & shoe polish tip!!


Little 14 drawer chest.
Yep. You heard me right.
14 drawers. Each drawer only 1x3"
I finished 3 more Ps 139 jars.

Sold before I could even get the pics on here.
Working on more.
(would love to see yours if you make one). =)

Here is a new project.
Fun and easy.


A few hymn book pages.
Paint or stencil a cross on the front.
(Or if you had a thin wood one would work.)

Add a little piece of jewelry,
and, an Easter reminder of what the day is really about.
(edges will be shaded too.)

And speaking of shading.
Another blogger had this great idea for shading things.
Use shoe polish and a sponge.

Was the shoe polish tip giver.
I should have known it was one of my regular blogs I visit.
Thanks Vicki.
(please go see her adorable blog if you have not been.
She is also having a give away!!!!

Blessings all, and Happy Monday

What a great little chest, Barbara Jean! It looks like it would come in handy for keeping some supplies at hand for you.

Hi Barb,
I LOVE your little drawer thing! Wow! I can't believe there's 14 of them!
I made a something with the Psalms verse too. But a little different. I will have to show you.
Thanks for sharing!
Hugs,
Sonya

I love your little chest! That was a great find! Love your bottles and the cross on the sheet music, too. I think I'll do that. Thanks for showing us.
