Artful Times -- DT piece -- House shape

For my DT piece on Artful Times this week, I have altered the drawers on a advent house one of my daughters gave me. They knew it would get the Wendy treatment. I have made metal drawer fronts for them.
I couldn't take the tiny knobs off so had to make a hole in each metal square to allow me to pop the knob through.
All the squares have been made out of metal in various colours ( Ten seconds studio) They have all been embossed in embossing folders. Some were silver that I put alcohol ink on, some of them have been lightly sanded to uncover the silver underneath the colour.
I keep all my wooden and alphabet die cuts in them.

This is gorgeous Wendy. What a great way to recycle your advent house calendar.

Love embossing metal, with added colours the effect is magical. You've now got a beautiful piece of useful storage!

A great house shape for the DT for the challenge! And I have seen it irl so I know how lovely it is.
Hugs, Neet xx

I found it, this is gorgeous. What do you use it for (on the Artful Times blog it said to come and find out why it was so useful)? I hopped over before but for unknown reasons (probably stupid computer playing up) didn't leave a comment, so I am back!
