I have seen some lovely storage on pinterest, like perpspex boxes, but when I eventually found some they were £6 each, so needing 12 that would be £72.
By chance I came across a site for laser cut shapes called laser cut outs who were selling mdf boxes for £1 each. So I ordered 12 of the 100mm ones.
So for a total of £12, I now have a beautiful pen rack.
It was a fair bit of gluing, but they went together nicely and it feels very sturdy. I added some angled bits of wood to the bottom to give it a slight tilt backwards to stop the pens falling forwards.
I couldn't just leave it there, so decided to get busy with some acrylic paint and my vast collection of Lavinia Stamps. Then sealed with spray vanish.
Whilst I was in the mood, I also decorated some drawers on another mdc storage unit to match.
For these I glued paper to the front, sanded it down and again used my stamps.
All in all a very productive day, now onto some colouring.
Challenges I would like to enter:
Lavinia Stamps - Anything but a card
Hiding in my Craft Room - Freestyle
Alphabet Challenge - No Designer Papers
