Gina's Designs DT Project - Multi-Purpose Advent Calendar

I know it's "Christmas in July", but I was in the process of moving most of that month so I decided to do a few "Christmas in August" projects. Today I have an advent calendar for you made from the 24 Drawer Storage Unit.  What is nice about making one like this is that you can use it over and over and you decide what kind of goodies to put into the drawers!
Now I know some of you are thinking yes, they are great for the first 24 days of Christmas, but then it's just another thing you have to store! 
Well, if you make it that way, but what I did was paper the other side of the drawer into something I can use everyday. Yes, I will have to find a temporary home for the everyday items when it 
is time to use the advent calendar but I love the idea of being able
to use items vs having a bunch of things in storage.

I  covered the one end of the drawer with my everyday use paper and attached metal drawer pulls.
The other side of the drawer has the advent calendar. I just pull out the drawer and turn it around.
 I did leave the top and sides uncovered to show the beautiful wood. You are able to decorate the top with different Christmas items.
I hope this gives you another idea on how to use Gina's great products!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
