Harlequin Romance

Found this little chest in a junk shop for $30.  It had a bright pink undercoat
and big pink wooden knobs.  At first, I was going to leave it chippy pink & black but
it was too garrish.  I decided to paint a harlequin design, but as I was walking
down the scrapbooking aisle at Hobby Lobby, I saw this paper & decided to try
decoupaging it onto the drawers.       Hmmmmmm   much harder than I thought..

Aligning all those squares was NOT easy.  After attaching the front of the drawers
onto the chest, I saw how crooked the drawers actually are.   Although I'm not super pleased
I did think it turned out cute and would work in some little vignette.   

Found the roman numeral clock face knobs at Hobby Lobby &  thought they added a nice touch to the harlequin pattern.


  1. Very cute! And I love the knobs, too!


  2. How great is that!!! I'm such a sucker for black and white, even my dog is black and white :D

    I've never tried decoupaging, I can totally see how it would be a booger trying to get things to line up. I think it's fabulous!


  3. Very pretty! Gives the piece the pizazz it needed. Thanks for sharing with Air Your Laundry Friday again!
