I love these little book racks, you can still sometimes find them at a reasonable price at the usual thrifting haunts. I always pick them up when I see them, quite often they are home made.
A bit of distressing and some rose decals as a finishing touch.
They don't need to be just for books, depending on the slope, you can use them as mini shelves for any knick-knacks and they are good for adding height at the back of a display.
I haven't decided yet if this one will go to the shop or not, I love it a bit too much at the moment.
These lavender sacks did make their way to the shop though.
With the better weather it's great to be able to paint outside, I have some larger items in the pipeline. Indoors I don't have much room and have to keep to smaller things.
I mixed my own shade of pink for this card holder and wooden storage box. These I decoupaged with floral cut-outs and vintage paper doyleys.
Several coats of varnish are required to protect the paper. Also, it is not recommended to have these items in strong sunlight as the cut-outs are prone to fading.
This is my weekend off, I have nothing much planned except pottering around the house and garden which are in desperate need of attention. Oh and staying up late tonight to watch a film as I don't have to get up early tomorrow! Hope you all have a good weekend.
