A Very Tall Chest of Drawers

I decided to make something for my princess! A very tall chest of drawers. She'll also have some new dolls tomorrow, as I stepped into a local toy store today and could not resist a family of wooden dolls.

Match boxes are great for making furniture. Each drawer has a different little button for the drawer pull.

The doll family admires the beautiful veneer on one side.

And then the other side. It is actually a few pieces of paper cut from some scrapbook material I have, glued into place and then covered with a coat of mod podge.

But what's this?

It's a little letter for my darling!

What does it say?

We're studying Roxaboxen right now and my daughter just loved our first reading of it tonight. This little letter will be a fun "find" for her tomorrow while I am at work. Her dolls can play Roxaboxen.

They'll need the pretty treasure.

Happy doll house playing,
