Danika and Cheryle sent me 3 of the Gigi panels to play with and immediately I knew where they would go. This small wood chest in my kitchen needed a makeover, it needed the extra bling that O'verlays add.
I started by painting the Gigi panels navy blue (as seen in this post)
They take spray paint like a dream!
Once they were all dry and ready to attach I got to work. I used Command strips on each corner to attach them to the drawer fronts.
(Bonus they can be used again & painted again)
The size O'verlays I was working with are designed to fit the IKEA Malm dresser, so they were just a tad short for my chest. But,
I came up with the best solution!
Remember my Big, Fat Fail spray paint screw up? (see that post here) The spray paint chipped off in 2 seconds, but Rub n' Buff to the rescue. It worked like a charm.
After letting the handles dry I attached them to the chest and without further ado, here is my new glamified O'verlays chest
They look black here, but I swear they are navy.
I decided to attach the handles vertically on either side of the panels. I love how different they look being attached this way!
Where this chest is in my kitchen makes it close to impossible to get a good shot of it straight on
On top I have a white ceramic elephant that holds index cards (index cards are a staple in my house- they are perfect for shopping lists, notes, reminders and so much more), chalk for the chalkboard, a pen holder that I spiffed up with marbled paper, the white drawer unit holds receipts, and cookbooks.
This chest holds more cookbooks, wedding presents, a few office supplies that I use alot, and other random serving pieces that don't fit in my armoire.
Again, sorry for the weird angle
These fretty frets from O'verlays are awesome! They made this plain little corner of my kitchen so much prettier to look at, that's for sure!
