"French Country Cottage" altered mini dresser chest!

Hey guys!

I want to share my latest project...a cutie patootie mini dresser chest!! My favorite craft store, "The Craft Warehouse", had a sidewalk sale about a month or so ago and was on clearance! I love clearance:) 

I wanted to give it a "French Country Cottage" look with this 1 sheet of designer paper that was given to me in a "GaG" (Got a Gift or Give a Gift) package! It was an 8 1/2 x 11 black and cream colored with a french theme on it. I painted the box with a crackle finish, tore the edges of the paper to fit around the top, sides and front of drawers, added pearls and feet, tulle and pompom!  I felt it was done with just the right finishes and I am proud that it came out the way it did! Sometimes we have to go with what our gut tells us! 

I did make it for a friend of mine who had a birthday a while back....but as some may or may not know....I'm slow:)! But it's done and shipped now, I just hope she likes it!!

Here are some pics and the video to follow! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and watching. Please leave a comment!
