Altered metal drawer set.

 After finishing the next set of drawers, I was again left with the decision of what to use for drawer pulls. I had a few ideas, but  decided on these Tim Holtz faucet knobs. I used black alcohol ink to make them darker. I knew there was a reason I bought that black alcohol ink, it just took me a few years to figure it out! 
 This set has 3 drawers, all the same size. I'm going to be keeping my metal embossing tools in it so it seemed appropriate to use metal for the drawer fronts. 
This is the same technique  I do when teaching this mirror. It's kind of like a puzzle once most of the metal is embossed. It takes me a while to figure out where it all fits together. As I was working on this I thought I would want to do some kind of design on the sides but once the drawers were put in, it didn't seem to need anything else. So here it is all finished.

My next metal embossing workshop is Sunday, April 7 at Laura Daub Studio.

What are you creating this weekend?
