Distressed Countdown Advent Cabinet

I had so much fun making this project. This Advent Calendar Cabinet is the perfect holiday decoration. Drawers are just big enough to hold little treasures so excited keiki's can count down the days until Christmas arrives.

Paint the cabinet with the color of your choice. Measure each drawer and cut 24 pieces of patterned paper to fit, mixing patterns and colors as desired. Punch a half-hole in the top edge of each piece to match the notches on the drawers. Use the stain to ink the edges around the cabinet. Mod Podge the cut paper to the drawers. Cut paper to fit the sides and back of the Advent calendar box; ink and adhere with Mod Podge.
