This is one of my projects completed. It does take a good 24 hours to ensure the glue sticks well at each stage. The bright colours I used on the front of the drawers was wallpapering, sticky back paper; so easy to work with. I do intend buying some handles for the drawers to finish off the look. Each of the drawers has been lined with felt and suede fabric. I really didn't want to lose the original logos on top and sides so covering in frosted netting seemed to do the trick.

Thank you. I love using it too. It's retro, takes me back to the old shops we used to have when I was growing up. ....many years ago :)
