Are you sitting comfortably?
Once upon a time ....... we bought six Ikea Fira drawers. They hung around for a while, I decorated one as a gift and one for ourselves, leaving four awaiting processing. They waited ... and waited....
I think they are now around 15 years old, Ikea don't even make them anymore, though they still have a similar item, with different dimensions. The good news is - I have finished another one!!!
I coloured the wood edges with promarkers and intended to cover the top, sides and drawer fronts with some of my precious Venice paper. This required two sheets, I only had one of the brown colourway I wanted to use, so had to go for a green pattern instead. The drawer fronts were fine, but unfortunately the paper is quite delicate and the larger top piece just wouldn't lie flat onto the item, I ended up ruining the paper . So a swift change of plan was needed ....... I painted the top and sides instead, which meant I could have used the brown paper for the fronts after all LOL. But I am happy with the green, it has turned quite well :-)
Now to decide what to do with the next one, they are all going to be different LOL.
