Something old from something new

Today we are going to make something old from something new and we are going to use that last piece of fabric that I’ve got left from my previous project.

This is a Picture Box that I’ve received as a gift few years ago.

It was not my style and the size doesn’t fit the amount of pictures that I have. We are going to do a makeover for this client of ours.

Let’s go!

One coat of primer

Lots of coats of paint and sandpaper to distress

Old wallpaper sample to line the shelves

Old button to make a cute drawer pull

And we are done. Well, almost…. In my previous post in this Blog, I've had a dilemma on how to use the last piece of fabric. Finally, I have an idea!

Let’s make a pin cushion (no more pieces of this fabric flying around) and we’ve got a perfect sewing chest.

Something old from something new! Love it!
