Mini Sewing Cupboard

Welcome back to another Imagine If… Design Team project, this week I have a mini Sewing Cupboard for you.

I started with the  MDF Armoir (waredrobe) from Imagine If… gesso first (of course).  The furniture in my studio is painted a turquoise with stenciled pink flowers on it, and I thought I would paint this little cupboard in the same way, first I had to find the paint in the garage…

The inside of the cupboard was going to be white, but I needed some shelves, so I used some chipboard and cut them to the right size then glued them into place.

Then it was time to fill the inside. First I got a couple of little bottles from PaperVine’s Glass Bottles Trio and filled one with mini buttons and one with little beads, these were put onto the top shelf with a pair of scissors charm (I have a real pair just like this!).

I then cut cardstock for the fabric bolts, and then I dipped into my stash of fabrics (so much fun!) and created little bolts for the cupboard.  Lastly I got a small cat from the chipboard Set of Cats, and painted him black, then I put him just where I might find one of my cats – sleeping on the fabric where he shouldn’t be!
