This ATC Armoire is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. It’s my first stab at it so I think of it as kind of a “proof of concept”. The first one is where I work out all of the issues. I’m anxious to see what you all think of it. If you like it, I’m thinking it could be a good subject for a video tutorial.
I’ve also had some thoughts about other ways to approach it (as in other types of containers to use). This Armoire is made from a cigar box. I’ve also thought of some alternative ways to hang the ATCs. In this example I’ve used hangars and clothespins.
In addition to the rack to hang the ATCs, I also added a row of matchboxes in the bottom. I thought added to the idea of the piece being an Armoire.
You can store other items like maybe inchies in the drawers or perhaps clothespins.
Although I’ve gone with a regency style theme on this one, you could choose any theme for the décor. Below are pictures of the inside of the doors. With this project there are so many great surfaces to decorate.
The images of the regency style ladies on the outside of the armoire (in the pictures below) are courtesy of Evelyn Duncan. She offers beautiful images for free on her blog “My Fanciful Muse”.
I decorated the top of the armoire with flowers and a stack of hatboxes made from jeweler’s tins.
I’m thinking this project would also work for tags, altered postcards and other art pieces. I would love your feedback if you would like to see this as video tutorial.
