I finished this today!LOL. Better late than never - and think of the days I don't have to put stuff in now!
(Have used the Dear Santa papers from Kaisercraft and some Collections chipboard shapes with Tim Holtz distress crackle paint-all available at Annas Craft)
I'd heard these take a lot of time and work - but honestly this didn't take me long at all.
I didn't paint it - but this wasn't a time saving measure - I just like the 'kraft' colour.
And then I just did all the drawers while talking to my MIL yesterday - didn't take all that long and then it just left decorating the drawers and doing the little LO in the middle.
So it may have been a good thing I went into it thinking it was a lot of work because I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was! well worth it!
(My plan is to change the middle bit each year - but I didn't put 2009 on it just in case I don't!LOL)
