My mom gave me a bunch of fun things to re-purpose or fix up and this little set of drawers was one of them. It had some drawers in it but I took them out. I wanted to use it as an organizer in my bathroom for my makeup and jewelry that I wear every day. I decided to try out a new Ikat pattern on this little guy.
This was the BEFORE:
I started by painting the inside a fun orange color and I painted the outside a vintage white color. I did LOTS of coats on the inside before it finally looked good.
Now for the ikat pattern. I practice on my paper first but basically I would paint a small circle and then pull the paint up and down all around the circle’s edges. You have to work quickly before the paint starts to dry.
