Earlier this week I showed you how I transformed that small armoire into a kid’s art desk. Today I’m going to share the details of the art accessories I used.
I bought these cute little metal bins at my local $$Tree. After I decided what items I wanted to corral I brought out my Silhouette Portrait and some white vinyl and got busy.
I chose Another Typewriter as the font for the vinyl lettering. I always make little boxes around my text boxes to make it easier to transfer to my project.
Apparently I didn’t take any pictures, but I used painter’s tape to transfer the letters like I did for this project. I like this method for small projects with single lines of text.
I also got the small little plaque and the plastic tote at the $$ Tree.
I got out a couple of small wooden chairs to see if they would work for the table height. I washed them down, and cleaned off some of the oils that had built up over years of use.
I painted the chairs with a couple of quick, light coats of Heirloom Traditions Chalk Type paint in Luau Green.

I used Heirloom Traditions clear wax to protect and seal the chairs.
I think the light green chairs are a perfect compliment to the Polished Pearl cabinet.
I love the white vinyl on the colorful metal bins, don’t you?
