    • LOL, Thank you! Ohhh Karen, this one about did me in. I wrestled, cussed and stomped my way through it. 😉 Ordered 3 of the same prints and staggered them all so I wouldn’t lose any of her face because I had to attach about 1/2 inch overlap to the top and bottom portion of the lip of each drawer. (Lip?? IDK if that’s the correct word) I’m so glad it’s finished. I’m kinda proud of the way it turned out 🙂 🙂 I think this is my favorite one so far. I love the curves.

  1. I LOVE the velvet Glove! so happy I found you, this is gorgeous! I’m looking forward to the tutorial, my niece wants a mermaid on her dresser, Ive got a really cool poster but just one copy, I don’t want to do it wrong and ruin it. xoxo Debi

  7. Lori, I know it’s been a few years when you made the marilyn monroe dresser. I just recently saw it and at that time you said you were gonna do a tutorial on how you made it. I know by now you have done that but I need to know where I need to go to find this tutorial. I love your work. I have a very good idea how you did it but I don’t want to make any errors. I need to know everything for sure. So can you let me know just exactly what I need to do? Thank you so much. Sorry it took me so long to find you but I know you are gonna be my favorite fan.
