I’ve wanted an Apothecary Chest for my Craft Room forEVER! I’ve actually been searching but they’re so expensive and I don’t really even have room for one – but, hey-when did that ever stop me. LOL I was actually shopping online for new chairs on Overstock – (which I love) – and I couldn’t help but do a quick little search just to see if they had one and I found this perfect little specimen!
I was so excited to make it my own that I totally forgot to take a before picture so here’s what it looked like when it arrived. (Sorry for the crummy photo but it’s midnight and dark here!)
Apparently, it is made by Doodlebug Designs and NO – I didn’t get paid to show this to you! I just love it so much and thought you might too. So – it fits under my cabinets and on top of my counter in my Craft Room. When I finish organizing, I’ll give you a tour.
So, let me tell you how smart these people are. The drawers are customizable which is awesome but…I would have used it without doing that. I would have totally meant to customize it but we both know that I would never have gotten around to it. So…they have the knobs on the inside of the drawers so you HAVE to undo them before you can use it. Genius!
You just unscrew the knob (with your fingers even – no screwdriver necessary). Then you peel off the protective layer on the plastic, cut a piece of patterned paper 4-1/2 x 4-1/2, put it behind the plastic, poke it with a paper piercer and put it back on the drawer front and screw the knob in.
Voilá! C’mon! How much do you love this! Here’s a close-up of one of the drawers. I might change them up with different papers eventually.
Nah! Who am I kidding? It’ll probably stay like this forever but, hey – I can if I want to and that’s all I need to know. haha. I’m still not sure exactly what I’m putting in here but there’s lots of room for all my crafting goodies. I’ll keep ya posted. I hope you like it. LMK if you have one or want one or what you’d do with one or two! haha!
