Butterflies, Dragonflies, Ladybugs

I came across this butterfly picture in a little curio shop near our cottage last year. I was very happy at how well it matched my wallpaper.
I also found an old window frame (without the glass) and decided to make it into a cabinet for the bathroom at the cottage.

The frame had to be sanded and primed, then painted. We made a box from 2x4's , the size of the window and used bead board in behind.

We then made three shelves and added hinges to the window frame, and attached it to the box.

To finish it off we added a handle and latch now we have a place for all the bathroom stuff.
This is a towel bar made from copper plumbing pipe and curtain rod mounts.
Great for hanging all the bath towels after your bath, or a dip in the river.

Oh very nice Deb :) I love the little pink flip flop soap/candles..I have a pair in blue in my bathroom.

I really like the cabinet. You did a fabulous job - as usual:)

Hope you are well...and staying warm.
