This week I've been talking about up cycling with freebies! If you haven't read the first post on my free vanity go here.
Ok so on to the next... The I have to get rid of this stuff Asap because I'm moving Free stuff!
I got a call from my sister in law who says her granny is moving.
I was a little hesitant at first because nothing came to me.. no inspiration or anything. I couldn't believe it myself plus it looked kinda kiddish. Well at the last moment I decided to take it as well. At the time I'd been wanting to cover a dresser in fabric so this piece would make a great tester. Yelp! And so it was.... See
I used a crocodile fabric I purchased several months ago from Hancocks Fabrics. At the time I had know idea what I was use it for, but this was the end of the bolt red dot thingy sale. I had just enough to recover the dresser with a little left for a cube table. You can see it here. I'll do a post soon.
There was nothing to it really.
- Measure and Cut- I measured the top, sides and drawers and cut the fabric to those sizes.
- Use glue and Adhere- I used a spray adhesive to apply the glue to the fabric and dresser. Starting in one corner I pressed it down with my hands and smoothed it all the way across the portion of the dresser I was working on.
After using the glue I stapled the top, bottom and sides of the dresser with staples. I did this only on the edges of the dresser(don't worry it can't be seen.) Ex: on the side panel underneath the bottom... were it meets the floor.

3. Add nailhead- Once again I use thumb tacks as my nail-head trim. If you didn't see the first project (a free sofa) I used them on click here. Using a hammer and cardboard as a guide I just hammered them right in. No Problimo.. Lol
Oh and Free Owl and Elephant from my sister in law too! Thanks Jen
