I have this super annoying storage thingy in my studio. If you have one you know what I mean
The other day I went to perhaps the strangest estate sale ever. The house was filled with ugliest random furniture, and trust me I can go for random. I did find this cute little dresser beneath a behemoth lamp. Modeled here by my associate.
It was my intention to teach her how take the knobs off, but she was uninterested because I told her she couldn’t use this.
For a couple of days I wondered how to make this little dresser my own. I have been known to organize a thing or two, but I usually reorganize it again later and have to change all the labels. I then thought I would be Ironic and decorate each drawer with pictures of things you couldn’t possibly fit in drawers. Out came the Pennys and Sears catalogs.
and the Elmers.
I then gave each drawer a coat of glue and had some fun randomly placing images. I let the drawers dry overnight, and in the morning used an old framers trick my dad taught me. By gently sanding the edges of the drawer I was able to get a clean line while removing the excess paper.
I need a new camera. A trip to the bottomless pit unearthed these porcelain beauties.
After trying to get my associate to put the pulls on. I just did it myself.
So here you have it. I keep my tires in the first drawer, my tv’s in the second, my shotguns in drawer three, my roller skates in drawer number four and small children in the bottom.
