Chintz is back ...

I know this might not be to everyone's taste, but I love it. It came into my life covered in pale pink plastic vinyl with shagpile carpet stuck on the top. Now it's a dressing up box, of such fancy, that I'm sure Liberace would have approved.

All that was needed was some second hand bits I picked up from car boot sales. My upholstering skills are zilch, so I just cut out the material and tacked it under the fringing with upholstery nails. The base is covered in wallpaper. I lined the straight edge along the top and tucked my badly cut edge underneath. A generous spread of wallpaper paste and voila - chintz is back!
