Decorated drawers

I have a hard time throwing away my kids' art.

What a brilliant idea. I have become quite callous over time and can have some very brutal moments when it comes to discarding works of art. It is either that or the art needs a room of its own.

Very clever! I agree, the art takes over if you let it! I used some slices of one of my daughter's paintings the other day to make some long-overdue thank you cards...

kirsten said...

oh, yeah, that is such a great idea!

raspberry said...

That is a great idea! But what do you do with the dry pasta and lentil pictures?! Cook them???

beki said...

Such a great idea!

Max said...

What a great idea! You sure are ever inspiring Ali :)

Elinor said...

I love this idea and I'm going to *have* to copy it! :)

Zoe said...

crackin' - i love it. x

Crabby Amy said...

Love the idea!!! the art in this house has taken over lately and I seem to be in need of fresh ideas of what to do with some of it!

rebecca said...

What a clever idea with great results!

karen said...

What a brilliant idea - think I may be using your idea too - I know what you mean about not throwing out the boys' art - Richie is worried that we won't be able to get into the house soon!

sal said...

they look fab! - I'm just lacking a small child to create the art!

Tobey said...

Bummer....I can't see the pic. :-(

I love their art work on the little chest of drawers, what a fab place to put it on view like that.

I finally got to see the drawers today! MY puter wasn't showing them before... they are dinky! I love them! (and, with apologies, I know a little girl who produces enough artwork to cover all her bedroom drawers... now where did I put that glue?)

Amy said...

Oh good - I can see the picture now finally. I love it -- it's a wonderful effect. I can see why you can't throw the stuff away -- its very charming!

i came to have a look last week and couldn't see any photos. They look so good.

capello said...

yeah, me too.

that's why it is shoved under my bed.

Oh my goodness, what a superb idea, Ali - I may have to pinch this because the fronts of my kitchen cupboards are rapidly filling up!!!
