I just realized that despite being a member of this board for nearly a year, now, this is my first real showing of my crafts (one swap doesn't count, I think Smiley)

I've been needing somewhere to store some of my extra art and craft supplies and I saw something special in this old, country-cottage cabinet sitting near my front door:

1 coat of primer, a trip to Home Depot, 2 coats of black paint, a hand-cut stencil, and one search for lost hardwear later, here's what I came up with:


Thanks for looking Cheesy!

i love it!  unicorny enough to make my inner 7-year-old squeal with glee, but it also looks grown-up.  did you draw the unicorn yourself or find it somewhere?

Heh, heh, sorry guys: your suggestions really did help - honest Kiss!

Yay! I made a seven-year-old squeel with glee  Grin!

It took me a while to find what I wanted. I ended up basing the stencil on a drawing I found through google (http://www.pen-paper.net/artgallery/BrittMartin/Unicorn.jpg.html)
At first I had wanted a heart-theme but eventually I thought an overall vibe of little kid grafitti would do the trick Wink.

Oh, and I forgot to link to one of my main inspirations, found here on craftster:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=63647.0
