|Swag light from Ikea|
This my old Ikea bookcase painted red. I mostly have put my magazines on it. You might think I have a lot of magazines but this doesn't include my Martha Stewart collection or the 130 that I got rid of...
See the box on the second shelf? It was actually a Royal Doulton figurine box that I was throwing out when I realized the bottom was black. I used leftover wallpaper on the top and now I have a sturdy storage box for $0.
The wild zebra box on the top shelf came from Homesense. Finally, I have started painting my old cabinet that I got for $50. Hopefully, I will get it finished tomorrow.
The inside top was painted with Sarah Richardson's Escarpment paint leftover from my kitchen. The outside will be white. I wanted the inside to be different but not too much. I will eventually paint the inside bottom too but right now I'm on a deadline - returning to work on Monday. I'm still mulling over the possibility of distressing the cabinet. Am I brave enough?
What's left to do? Some housekeeping of the built-in bookshelves, getting the table for my sewing machine, hanging the other swag light, sewing drapes and painting and covering a bulletin board...wish me luck.
