Quick Fix for Under $3

My neighbor was getting rid of this antique cabinet and I immediately thought it would work for Buttercup's room.  It is a really cute little cabinet and, while it needs some tender loving care, it is shabby chic the way it is now.  The piece was obviously some kind of curio cabinet and originally had a glass front which disappeared long before we got it.  Since Buttercup doesn't have a dresser, I thought this would work well for her and keep her room from feeling crowded.  She loves it and has been using it for two months.  Yes, it has taken me this long to put some fabric in it.  Better late than never, right?

Life calmed down and it was time to fulfill my pinky promise.  So, I headed to Walmart and bought a yard and a half of lightweight cotton fabric.  Attached it with a little velcro and, viola, a quick fix for under $3.

Oh, and Buttercup says it is just "perfect".  No greater praise than that, right?
