Catherine from Bluenose Life found a small laminate bookshelf that was destined for the dump in her neighborhood. You’ve probably had one of these Wal-mart cheapies at some point in your life.
Catherine sanded the whole piece down and then primed and painted it white. She jazzed it up by creating a new back from thick cardboard covered with fabric. This is really the icing on the cake for me. The color and pattern are quite loverly!
