~*before and after*~

I am not really sure where this shelf came from. Dan got it for me some time ago, maybe from a yard sale, flea market, someone throwing it away, but it was tucked away in a corner of my closet and while I was cleaning out a box of photo albums yesterday I found it and thought of the perfect use for it. So I dusted it off, painted it and VOILA!

I would like to make a large strawberry pin cushion to hang off the bottom bar when I hang it on the wall when I move the sewing machine to the craft room/spare bedroom when I finish that room up. I love the way it came out. The licorice black paint is perfect, and now I can see all the colors of the threads without having to dig around in the drawer of the machine to find the color I need. A great T2T project!!!
