Set of drawers hacked into a sewing box

Materials: Fabric, Ikea drawers, staple gun, saw, screws, glue gun

Description: First I disassembled the drawers. Then I used hardboard to fill in the box to the correct config.
Covered with batting and fabric to upholster. Appliquéd a design for the lid. Finished with tape and voila!

    Sorry but i can not see any different exapt of the nice fabric. Do you change the use of it at all? Dont be angry about that, but this is much work but same produkt for me.

    How did you deal with the dovetail joints once you removed the top? Did you fill them or just use the fabric covering to make it look flush?
