Happy Saturday, everyone! Connie here to remind you to make sure you have supplies on hand in case of an emergency. That is what I had in mind when I decorated this fun little cabinet because you never know what might be coming your way.... hurricane, tornado, flooding, even the zombie apocalypse (which is what inspired this piece!).
I started with the GSL Arch Top Cabinet with Doors. The cabinet is easy to assemble. It has a back wall, top, bottom & sides plus a front piece with two cabinet doors.
After assembling the cabinet with tacky glue, I gave the exterior surfaces a coat of gesso followed by black acrylic paint. The interior was papered with a neutral gray scrapbook paper I had in my stash.
Next step was to glue miniature hinges in place onto the front piece. I later added 'nails' by snipping the heads off of some straight pins and gluing them in place.
For interior storage, I used the GSL Petite Garden Shelves. They were assembled using tacky glue and painted in gray acrylic paint.
Before I glued the shelves inside the cabinet, I adhered all the miniature emergency supplies in place and hung an Open In Case of Emergency sign on a cabinet handle.
I found lots of safety prep and first aid images and shrunk them to fit on the interior cabinet doors.
On the top shelf is a first aid kit, a mini compass, a matchbox made from a wee printable, a can with a water purification tablet label, tiny knife and a pack of batteries made from printed images and a wooden skewer.
The middle shelf holds playing cards (gotta keep busy during the apocalypse!), another Lego weapon and a container of firestarters (dried seeds).
Next to the shelf I added a dollhouse lantern on the left and a bedroll made from quilt batting on the right.
The bottom has a few cans of Spam I made from dollhouse bricks. Fritos are our absolute must have in our house when bad weather is forecast so I knew I needed to make a bag of those! The roll of toilet paper was made from strips of paper towels wrapped around a cardstock core.
Stay safe out there!
