Christy made another COOL box :)

               Christy just completed another COOL box with drawers.:) This is the front view.

                                                                        One side....

                                                                   The other side....

               One of the drawer pulls...the others are parts of metal keys that she purchased from       Michael's Craft store.You can get a closer look at them when you click on the first pic.:)

                                                            Close up of one of the legs...

                                                                       The very top...

Christy used decorative metal sheets that she purchased from Hobby Lobby. On the front of the box...she glued some chip board cutouts to the box fronts and then overlaid them with the metal sheet. Glued and then formed them around the chipboard pieces.On the sides she embossed the metal sheets using her Cuddle bug folders.She antiqued the whole thing when it was completed. The brads on the sides were done just like the chipboard on the front. She laid them on a piece of tape in the order she wanted them and then attached them to the box ..then she removed the tape...cause it was just so they would line up .....then formed more metal sheeting around them. Christy used aluminum duct tape for the top so it would mold easily to the roundness of it.I really LOVE the way it turned out....and NO..she didn't give this one to me.She kept it for herself and I don't blame her one bit.:)

Thanks for stopping in again...huge hugs!
