I painted it white and added scrapbook papers to the back to hide the heart cutouts. Without the cuties it doesn't look that great but once you add
the cuties it looks much better. I've agonized for years what to do with this shelf. I do mean years like about 13 probably a little longer and I could never figure out what to do with that smaller little shelf. Then it hit me while I was cleaning all the cuties on the oak shelf in the sitting room. My little pitcher collection would look great there with a blue background.
Next I need to paint the little bookcase the carpenter made me. The same white but I think I'll paint the back blue this time. The little quilt was a class I taught quite a few years ago. I'm thinking a blue and white quilt would look pretty good. Maybe it's time to raid the stash. :-) Hope you enjoyed my little project. Just goes to show you that it's never too late to finish a project or finally get inspiration for one.
