These are adorable!  I made of set of worry dolls for my sister-in-law once.  They did not turn out as nice as these!  Kudos on your first set.  Smiley

This is an awesome idea!  I don't have kids, but I can use this for myself!

This is a great project!  It looks great in your music corner.  I want to see your record shelf when you are done with it.   Smiley

To solve the scratchy problem try using felt on the backs....or even attaching them to a crocheted bracelet  Wink

The crocheted bracelet is brilliant!  Now, I just need to find someone who can crochet...

Actually I might just decoupage my entire desk now because I am rather envious of yours (plus, I managed to ruin the top of my desk, its a crappy particle board and I put shelf liner on it and when I took the shelf liner off... well it took the laminate top too).

But it really looks like a space that you could sit down at and be inspired to create.

I wish you the best of luck with your project!  IF you do decoupage your desk, please post it so I can see it!

The desk is the most inspirational place in my apartment.  I absolutely love it!

Thanks!  There is no need to be jealous!  You could easily makeyour own.  :-p

Mostly Mod Podge but I am going to coat it with a polyurethane sealer.  Only two of the drawers haven't been sealed yet.  I think I like the distressed look of the white paint with the pictures; however, when I have more money I might go back and paint it.  I also think I will strip the knobs like the middle drawer.  What do you think?

So, I had this dingy desk.  I know it belonged to my mother, and it may have belonged to her grandfather before that.  The point is, it's old, and it has been in the family for a while.  And it was looking its age.  I didn't want to paint it; thus, I hit upon an idea.  I would create a look that suited me and was in honor of my mother who got me started on crafting.  She passed away years ago, but I think she would love this desk!

To start:

Sanded down top:

Sanded drawer:

The mostly finished product (it needs to be clear coated a couple more times!):

The bottom left drawer is Alice in Wonderland, middle left is colors!, top left is pieces of old singer manuals, middle is a bit of everything, top right is more colors, middle right is Trixie Belden, bottom right and top are a collage of things that are either sentimental to me or just interesting. 

And, a close up of the bottom edge; I put a tape measure on it so that I can measure hassle free!

Comments and criticisms welcome!  This was my first try.  I hope to find a chair that will fit in that desk that I can decorate to match!
