We make from a cardboard a capacious chest with drawers for needlework

Today there will be a story about how I was taken to "weakly". The background is as follows. My dear husband, watching from the outside, as I did for my future workshop organizers, somehow casually said: "And the chest of drawers itself is weak?".

And that's not weak! A good idea is to embody.

Do not want to make it big or very small, so the size was determined quite thoroughly, as a result, I got a width of 60 cm, a depth of 30 cm, a height of 40 cm.

For the manufacture of the dresser I needed:

- binding, beer and corrugated cardboard;

- Kraft paper;

- calico, flax;

- glue Moment Joiner, PVA furniture, glue Moment Crystal;

- decorative handles 5 pieces;

- scissors, construction knife, square, iron ruler.

From corrugated and beer cardboard, I cut out the sidewalls and glue them together.

Then under the shelves on which the boxes will stand,I cut out additional sidewalls from dense double corrugated cardboard (if you do not have double corrugations, then glue the two sheets of corrugations together), they are equal in height to future drawers, I make a gap of 0.7 cm between the sidewalls - this is the thickness of the shelf when they dry out, pasted them coarse calico.

The thickness of the side wall of the dresser I turned out to be 1 cm, so the inner part of the bottom will be smaller for this centimeter, and the outer side of the beer cardboard will be larger, then the side walls will stand as if in a groove, and the outer corner will be even and beautiful.

On the back wall glued an additional panel of double corrugation, it will be based on the upper shelf, this panel covered with a breeze.

The middle shelf is made of double corrugations, covered with coarse calico, but the upper shelf has turned out in two parts from me - the underside (coarse calico) from the corrugated cardboard, and the upper side (flax) from the binding cardboard. I glued the fabric to the glue of PVA furniture, it is quite thick and therefore does not soak the cardboard, besides it does not leave marks on the fabric when it dries.

The grooves and the end parts of the shelves greased the Moment Crystal with the glue and gathered the base of the dresser, now the shape looms. Honestly, the time it takes to dry parts takes a lot, especially you need to ensure that the parts do not lead, so they dry under pressure.The main assistants in my drying parts were a building hair dryer and a regular iron. I dried the dried parts with an iron (without steam) and put everything under the press, all the details after that turned out to be even and oche-e-yen strong.

I made the lintels from several layers of cardboard - binding cardboard, then corrugation and again binding cardboard, covered with coarse calico and dried again 🙂

And here is the back wall - if I had doubts about the beginning of the dresser at the beginning, now they are gone and my husband does not smile sarcastically, but looks with interest!

Now I take out a roll of kraft paper - what a great paper it is, it helps me a lot in building houses - and here it was very, very useful, before it had to be begged at the post office, and now it turns out you can buy it at any construction shop. All the corners on the dresser sizing Kraft paper, the corner is smooth and at the same time securely fastened. I have a sidewall width of 30 cm, so I cut flax 35 cm wide, so that there is a sufficient bend on the back wall, as well as 0.7 cm on the front side.

I glue the flax with a whole strip - 40 cm + 60 cm + 40 cm, slightly pulling on the sides, drying with a hair dryer, and then I make incisions, but not to the end, leaving 0.5 cm undercut and folding the strip inward.

I cut the inside of the sidewall from the binding cardboard and covered it with flax.

I cut a piece of flax on the back wall, didn’t bend it, because it turns out undesirable thickness, so I take out a sewing machine and let a decorative line on the edge of the back part, it will prevent the edge from falling off and at the same time decorate the back wall.

Well, the base is almost ready and I start to assemble the boxes.

She glued them out of the binding cardboard - with the glue Moment Crystal, the most important thing is to withstand the corner when gluing the bottom of the box. After drying, all the corners are glued with kraft paper and glue Moment Joiner.

Then I take a piece of linen fabric, cut it out so that there is an edge at one end, I begin to glue it from the middle of the end part of the box, exactly where I will have the front side. The edge should go about 1 cm, overlapping the edge of the strip.

A neat corner is not difficult to get; the main thing is not to cut it off from the very edge, but to leave about 0.5 cm from the corner and glue the corner in an overlap, but make sure that the overlap is not large - 0.5 cm is enough, trimming from flax I didn’t throw them away, they were very useful to me to level the bottom of the drawer.

When dried flax becomes very durable and the box, respectively, too.

Now I cut out the inner parts from the beer cardboard and paste them with a light coarse calico, then paste them into the box - first the bottom, the edges of the coarse calico I pull onto the walls of the box and also glue, the extra fastening never hinders 🙂 then the side walls.

I decorated the bottom of the drawers in the same way as the back wall of the dresser - it turned out smooth and beautiful. The front panel of the boxes will protrude by about 0.5 cm beyond the edges of the box, I cut them out of the binding cardboard and put a polka dot on my calico, two tones - red and brown. The front panel is decorated with a small flax insert, I calculated how long a strip is needed for one such insert, multiplied it by three, added centimeters to the bend and cut a single strip of flax, then cut off the pattern on a typewriter and then cut the strip into three parts , drawing everywhere turned out the same. She did the same on the bottom drawers.

It remains only to glue the front panels on the boxes and screw the handles.

But I have not yet made small pockets for the instrument, at first I thought to simply glue the rectangle and there are cells in it,but it does not turn out to be interesting enough, and then I got a paper tube, I tried it on, it looks good, but it's enough for only two pockets, and I need 7-8 of them, that's all I have to do, -paper for a long time and dry, again, hard, and then I see how my husband collected all my scraps from the corrugated cardboard and tries to shove them into the stove to clean up and burn! Nightmare! Well, as it is possible - this is the building material, my hamster fainted! After a short fight, after winning a victory, I twist from the scraps of the corrugated tube.

How I did it:

- cut a corrugated cardboard with a longitudinal section;

- then a strip of kraft paper is twice as long as a strip of corrugated cardboard;

- I glue it with Kraft paper;

- I take a paper tube, winding a corrugation on it;

- tightly pressing the corrugation to the tube, rolling over the kraft paper smeared with glue, I take in the hands of the hot iron and again begin to iron this length of the tube, the corrugation becomes smooth, without corners, the kraft paper is securely glued, and I get a chic, Strong tubing I need the diameter.

I make 7 such blanks, then I cut off 4 cm and get such a column.I glue the workpiece between each other with glue Moment Crystal and cover the inner part with flax. Then I got carried away and forgot to take pictures of how I pasted strips of peas on the front part, but, in principle, it's clear there that the edges of the strips go into the fold and can not be seen on the front side. And for brushes, I made a special glass higher.

I pasted all the end parts with a ribbon in my favorite polka dots.

Well, that's all - my dresser is ready!

Even high tassels have finally found their place 🙂

The chest was quite roomy, even a fur was found.
