smitten

 From the bare-bones bookcase purchased for $5 at a garage sale...
...to this sweet beauty, fashioned by my husband.
It is painted a very pale baby blue, slightly distressed and waxed to a smooth finish,
I'm smitten!

    1. As difficult as it is, this one will probably be up for sale. Our house is full (although we never seem to have enough book shelves)!

    2. It will sell fast as it is so pretty and could be used for lots of things.
      Our house is pretty full too...hubby is a cabinet maker and antique furniture restorer by trade so we've 'collected' quite a bit over the years. Actually, I'm about to go outside and paint two pieces we were just given..a dressing table which will become a desk and a drop sided table. :-)

  3. That is amazing. If we lived close I would be in the market for it. I can see the quilts I make filling the shelves.
