Built By Me...

Ok, that post title is kind of a lie as Roger put this little baby together, but I did paint it all by myself!

Drawers

Willow's room is really a study so it has zero storage & no room for a wardrobe (or even a chest of drawers) which is a bit of a pain at times. When I started looking for a bedside table to go next to her big girl bed (!) I discovered this this tiny chest of drawers that was small enough to fit beside her bed & provide her with some much needed storage space.

Unfortunately it currently smells like new pine furniture & paint so I whipped up this little lavender filled sachet.

Lavender filled pouch

The elephant is needle turn appliqued onto linen & the back is polka dot cotton. He smells so good, I think I need to make him some more friends!

Storage is an issue in my youngest daughters bedroom too. Nice paint job and a gorgeous lavender sachet.

Oh yes. Something as cute as your elephant sachet needs some company :)
