Matchbox Dresser

This a cute and pretty easy project.  I bought small matchboxes at Wal-Mart. Costs less than a $1.00.

First I painted the sides and front of the inside of the matchbox black. I then glued decorative paper to the front and added some drawer pulls. (Tim Holz at Michael’s)

Making a minature dresser out of a set of matchboxes.

Rubberband the matchbox dresser together while it dries.

Glue the matchboxes together. I used just regular craft glue. Then I wrapped rubber band around them to keep them square. I lost one of the drawer pulls. Had to buy another pack.

I measured and cut chip board to cover the sides, top and bottom. I found chip board at Hobby Lobby.

Added some beads for legs and small piece of card stock at the bottom to finish it off.

Fun project. Give it a try.
