Default bookcase

The original was a built-in wardrobe we inherited when we moved in a couple of years ago. Pretty skanky. Finally got round to ripping it out.

We were going to make a box from the MDF to keep things in the shed but changed our mionds and made a small bookcase out of it. It needs some final touching up and some trimming when it's thoroughly dry (we wallpapered it) but it's pretty much done.

For info, the wallpaper was 9.00 from B & Q. Wallpaper paste (with loads left over) was1.49 from Dealz.

Hi Patricia

Yes - totally transformed from junk into something useful.

I did make the cushion - it's a bit of an obsession - only joking but I do make lots of them you can see some of the other recent makes on my blog: www.thesingingtree.biz.

Thanks! Jess is a rescue cat and still has issues but gets better by the week. She's a lovely girl and deserved a second chance and wouldn't be without her now.
