I got this lovely dresser from the local Storage Wars on Facebook, isn't it beautiful, lol, yeah I know,
U G L Y! Particle board at its best! (or worst) but it was solid and the drawers all worked nicely! You know I love a challenge!
Several years ago I got white faux leather for a good price, my first thought when I saw it in the store was that I wanted to cover a dresser with it. I popped off the drawer pulls and stretched the fabric all around the dresser so that it wouldn't have any seams. .
I attached nailhead trim on it to hold the fabric at the top, then cut the centre away.
It was a little scary to cut this away, worrying that I would slip and cut it too close to the edge, but it all worked out just fine.
I tacked the edges in.
Now on to the drawer pulls, I just didn't have anything around that I felt suited it. Jasmin suggested something long, and I got hooked on that idea, but couldn't do it because I just don't have anything and wasn't about to spend $15 to $20 per pull. So, what to do, what to do? I had some wooden knobs that I covered with beads, but it really didn't do anything for this project.
I made these little bead flowers.
You know me, I never just make one of anything, I made one of every colour that I had. Quite the little garden I have going (growing?) here. I think I made 10, all different colours.
I glued them onto some small knobs that I took off the blue, cream, and silver dresser.
Here she is!
The pics aren't very good, but I don't feel like going back out in the cold to get more.
I haven't really committed to these pulls on this particular (or particle) (ha ha, I know, cheesy) dresser, but for now, this is it.
