It was sitting sadly in the basement of her italian house the last years before I discovered it.
It was dark brown, ready to go in the fireplace as firewood.
It was love at the first sight!!
It came in Texas with me and I immediately painted it in the same hue of the wall. And distressed it, I like to see the worn corners!!
Sorry, I don't have a picture of the "before"!
...but it is still sad to me...
Then I use the color for the accessories.
And this is what I did here.
Using my beloved embroidery machine I embroidered two nice designs and then I sewed different cute fabrics around.
And this is how the bookcase looks like now.
I am very proud of me, this is one of the best project I did.
I love it.
....but I am thinking of something else...I need to do a change around here...stay tuned.
