So what did I make with my new power tool??

In my last post I showed you my new power tool and I promised to show you what I created with it!

I've been looking around for paper storage for my 12 x 12 sheets.
There are so many choices and I've been umming and aaahhing about what to choose.... vertical... horizontal......ect.

I've been quite envious of the storage BFF had custom made for her a few years ago -you can get a glimpse here.
So everything I've looked at since then just hasn't compared and I can't find anything like it in the stores.

So I decided to create my own!!!

Here I am hard at work using the new jigsaw, cutting my side panel to size.

Notice my work safety approved shoes!!!

Here are my draws almost completed.... just needing a good paint

And here they are in there new home all painted and filled with paper.

So it was my first go at making anything like this and there are few little quirky characteristics to it that I love and hate - but I'm proud as punch to have made this from scratch and it works!!!!


  1. OMG you are so clever! I am super proud of you! Your new paper storage drawers look fabbo! Can't wait to check out your handy work in person in a few weeks. Yay!

    Had to giggle at the jandals lol! First thing I noticed in the whole pic.


  2. Great job! Mass production any time soon?

  3. Wow Trish! It looks FANTASTIC!!!!

  4. Wow! You clever thing, you. The end result is FANTASTIC ... love it (especially the side panels and the handles, oh, and the fact it's white). I laughed, because the first thing I noticed was what you had on your feet. Glad you stayed safe!

  5. Wow, Trish, that's awesome! I need some paper storage solutions, but I'm almost certain I won't be pulling out the jigsaw any time soon, LOL!

  6. OMG! I have never made a piece of furniture. You are amazing! Looks really fab! x

  7. You are utterly amazing Trish - the drawers look brilliant!

  8. Wow, how clever are you! That is fantastic Trish, they look great! You must be so proud, if I tried something like goodness knows what I'd end up with. lol


Thanks for taking the time to leave some love xox
