Making a desk from ....
First take 3 little matchboxes who are the same size.
Cut a them a little smaller.
I made them 3 cm.
Measure the outside and the inside of the matchboxes.
When you draw the line.
You can cut it with a scissor.
Now you have 3 little drawers and 3 bigger drawers.
The smal drawers, i glued together, side by side.
Then i put a piece of carton on top and on the bottom of these.
To let dry the glue, i used clothespins.
Then i glued the 3 bigger drawers on top of eachother (not on the photo).
Then i saw two pieces of wood, one for the top and one for the side of the desk.
Take a piece of carton the same size of the side of the big drawers.
Glue it on.
Give every thing a coat of blue paint.
If it is painted the carton and the matchboxes and the wood look the same.
My mother gave it an vanilla-cream color first and over that a coat of waterdowned green.
Her desk is a little different then mine.
Not only the color but her drawers are on the other side and she has two drawers on top.
And this is the result so far.
My mother's corner in green....
and mine in blue.
I also gave a little white wash to the paint, making it look a little more older and softer.
I did this by using a dry brush with a little bit of white paint.
Now we have to fill the drawers.
My mother did knit a little doll during last week, to go in her corner.
Isn't it a cuteeeee!
That's all for now.
Hope you liked it.
greetings from my mum.
