Snow White and Her Bookshelf

   
My latest up cycle was inspired by Snow White.

Yeah, I know. You’re thinking this doesn’t exactly scream Disney princess, and you’re quite right. It’s actually inspired by a gorgeous dresser on the set of Mary Margaret’s (aka Snow White) apartment, in Once Upon A Time, one of my favourite TV programs, based on fairytale characters.

  
You can see the dresser in the background of this image on the right. (Thanks to Once Upon A Time TV for the screen shot)

And again here on the left:

  
I love the colours it is painted, and the pretty wallpaper it is backed with.

And I thought to myself “I could do something like that, couldn’t I?”

So I dragged this daggy chipboard and faux wood grain laminate bookshelf in from my shed:

  
Then I pulled out some pretty paints and some scrapbooking paper:

   
 
And set to work! I apologise for the quality of some of these photos, they were taken inside at night time…… Bring on daylight savings time is all I can say!!!!!!

   
    
 
It didn’t start out any where near as pretty a piece of furniture as the original inspiration, but it looks pretty in my bedroom, and makes me think of soothing bedtime stories 😀

   
  
It makes for a great bedside cupboard.
