mini drawers

I found this naked mini drawer unit at Michaels Craft Store a few months ago. I knew what I wanted to do but lacked the time. Overall height is 11" tall, 4-1/2" wide and 3" deep.
Well, my vision came to fruition today. Using 7gypsies and Tim Holtz papers and a variety of hardware I now have a mini cabinet for paper clips, binder clips, staple remover, etc. by my pc.
I removed all knobs first, recycling the knobs, saving one for actual use as a knob pull and the others as feet.
Adirondack color wash in Espresso was used for the unit sans the drawers. Outer sides & top were covered in 7gypsies Fleur Noir. Once drawer fronts were covered with paper edges were sanded & inked with a Vintage Photo Distress Pad. Hope you like this as much as I do!
