vases to give them a warm milky glow.

My red cupboard was from a neighbor who was happy it was going to a home to be reinvented in its usage and loved. "One man's trash is another woman's treasure!" It has twisted roping wood trim along the top, antique latch (which shows on the fronts of the doors when they're closed), and original paint. I just gave it a good washing.
I made the paper shelf edging out of the stock market reports pages of the local newspaper. I folded it accordian style, cut the scallop edge and punched it with my scrapbooking star punch.
