Kaisercraft 25 Drawer Set
I have always loved the drawer sets that have lots of tiny little boxes. I wanted this Kaisercraft 25 drawer set as soon as I saw it. I was thrilled when I got it. My mind started churning out all sorts of ideas on how to decorate it.
I bought the perfect papers, adhesives, and paints. The work began.
Then the love started to wain....
Now, granted, I was feeling horrible and could only work on it for a few minutes at at time. It just seemed to take forever to paint and cover with all my pretty papers.
To be fair, I should explain that right after I started working on the box I decided to stop taking all my pain medications, detox, and be off meds for 6 weeks. THAT WAS NOT FUN! Why on Earth would I decide to do that? I needed to give my system a break from the meds prior to getting a pain pump implanted. (Only 9 more days to go!)
Still do not know what made me think this project would be a good idea to start while I was feeling so bad. Guess I hoped it would take my mind off of the ordeal. I often bite off more than could ever possibly be chewed.
So, after more than a month and quite a few tears (not the project's fault) I finally got the shelves and boxes all covered. I will probably go back later and add some embellishments and labels for the boxes. For now though, I am calling it done and taking a break. :)
