 Sentimental Sundays Lace 11-05-14

Quite a while back, I bought 20 of these boxes for 50p each.... RRP was £7-99....
Anyone who knows me, knows i love a bargain.

I started by giving the box a coat of paint,
Then i wallpapered the back of the box,
I then fitted a piece of carpet tile to the base,
My next job was to make a pelmet,
For this i used a piece of cereal box, Which i stained & cut in a die,
I then added lace to give it a girly look.
I uses bits of fabric (Left over from previous projects)To make the rolls of fabric on the shelf.
I used cotton from my sewing box to fill the reels Then added the buttons Etc.
