My project this weekend was this desk organizer. I found it at AcMoore in the wood section a few weeks ago...I need something by my computer to hold pens and notebooks and other little office stuff that I seem to keep misplacing on my desk.
First I white washed it with white acrylic paint and water. After that I covered it with Pink Paislee's Queen Bee collection. I love darker colors...more rustic looking....
At first I didn't know how I was going to dress this up. It was one of those things that I had to keep moving stuff around to figure out what I was going to do. I had to walk away and it wasn't until 9:30 last night that I finally was happy with how it was coming together.
The below picture shows some of the punch outs that coordinate with the Queen Bee collection. The pearls are from Prima's E-Line Collection.
and for the bottom front of the organizer I used the coordinating Queen Bee Ribbon (it's hard to see in the below picture). I was digging through some of my Prima Flowers and came across these really pretty orange, green, blue and pink flowers that I got at Michael's a while back.
I think it gave it the perfect pop of color.
I really enjoy making altered projects. I found this really neat wooden box that is going to be really fun to alter. I think it would be perfect for holding a mini album. Since I'm on vacation next week with no plans of going away (other than a few day trips here and there), I can maybe work on a mini and alter the box too. I hope you all have a great day.
