This unit is called the Tivoli unit and is designed primarily to be used as an advent calendar but it can be decorated for use all year round too. I decided to give mine a vintage twist and just for fun made it into an apothecary style unit. It will find a use on my desk storing drawing pins, paper clips and other such small items.
I'm a little bit OCD, and so I always have to decorate the back to make it pretty too. I found some wonderful vintage printable advertisements for some rather dubious sounding medications!
Electricity..nature's chief restorer apparently! Sounds a bit scary if you ask me !
These units can be decorated in any way you fancy.  I added the little wooden drawer pulls for feet to further customise the unit.
I used my old favourite - tomato paste tube, to cut the letters with Tonic's new alphabet dies. I've used Tonic's 2 part crackle glaze all over this unit. I love the effect!
(And yes, I had to decorate inside too !)
Jodie is on Create and Craft right now (2-3pm ) and will be on again at 7-8pm, so don't miss the shows.

Have a lovely afternoon
