Decoupage, paper doilies and drawers

Probably everyone has seen the storage boxes from Ikea

that are similar to this one shown.

I already had 2 misc. drawer pulls and created 4 more new pulls with clay.

I painted it white, decoupaged bits of paper doilies that I aged in the salt air first

then added the new drawer pulls.

( I like that I can create more or different ones as I wish,
I created more drawer handles with crystals here )

and a vintage luggage update with decoupage here

I love how the bird came out !

Then having bits of paper doilies left over I went in search of something

more that needed a little something...

Just a little fun in the studio today...


  1. Hi! Thanks for the visit to our blog..I have this exact box from Ikea and have been wondering how to transform it! Now I know, but don't have the time to do it..oh well. Maybe when things slow down after summer. I do hope you can make it by someday. Spend the day in Coronado and there are some great shops in Ocean Beach too!


  2. You did a beautiful job. I never would have thought of that. Gorgeous.
