Flamingo Wardrobe Decor

I wanted to share my little home decor project I made to hide away some of the junk that accumulates on my kitchen counter.This project took me quite a while to make, but I really love the way it turned out! I was inspired by the painted furniture I see on Pinterest.  

This cut file is from Snapdragon Snippets, purchased on the Silhouette Design Store.
I opened the file in Silhouette Studio and my first reaction was "oh my..."
Once I started ungrouping things and rearranging pieces, I ended up using about 10 pieces of paper for the armoire itself, and then an extra 3-4 pieces for trim and prettiness.
the assembly tutorial is very helpful and I referred to it quite often. You can check it out here
I did make a couple alterations. I wanted my flap to be part of the door, so I made a paper hinge that is hidden under the left side. (Jody's wardrobe opens the other way)
I layered the keyhole and then embossed it with silver embossing powder.
I also added a dimensional 8 point star on the top embossed with silver as well.
The inside was decorated with paper and elements that I had made a long time ago. I always seem to keep a lot of little things - just in case. ok maybe I'm just a hoarder, but you never know lol!

I think it turned out pretty great. A lot of work, but worth it. It looks pretty cool on my counter.
thanks for looking! See you soon.
