Secret Project REVEAL!!!!!

I started making this 10 days ago. Not too bad for a newbie.
I have a lot of online art friends who stream on Ustream - they do live art classes of various sorts.

Well  a week and a half ago, I watched a friend PSandi (her twitter nick) make some mini ablums.
You can see her make these minis here. I used her pattern and made some a tad smaller.

I little while before that I watched MusicScrp (Jean) create a chipboard armiore to hold cards, envelopes & and an address book. You can see her armoire here.

So inspired by both these creative woman, I decided to make a 5 drawer vanity for my mother in-law. She has 5 grandchildren, so each drawer will hold a mini album with photos of a grandchild.

It is created with chipboard, cardstock, craft paint (crackled with white glue), designer scrapbook paper, buttons & a picture frame. The chair started as a coke can, added batting to top and sides, wet same designer paper to use as fabric skirt, back is wire coat hanger & soft wire.

This will be a Christmas gift - I just had no idea how long it would take me, so I started early :P

I still have to collect pics of all the kids and add them to the minis.

And now the photos of my vanity! TA DA!
