Upside down

A recent project for my booth space. This was the top to a vintage washstand I found this minus the washstand. I asked the store owner would they sell it to me as is they said sure. My first thought was keep it in the upside down position and attach it to a wall. From there I would add a "mantel" and a few more embellishments to create a faux fireplace. That thought didn't last too long because it would have to be taken a part and customer's may not want to do all the assembling once home. Redesigning this was fairly easy. I added hangers on the back so it can be hung on a wall. Some batting, fabric and the applique from Do it Yourself Chic gives it a French Country feel. I love how it came out. Enjoy!
