I needed a TV shelf…

And rather than go with plain wood, I decided to get creative…IMG_1653My DH put the shelf together, and then I painted it green.  I didn’t do complete coverage as I wanted it to have some background texture.

Then I cut some fabulous bright petal shapes from some of my favorite fabrics!

IMG_1656This is it so far…  I’m really loving creating applique on wood!

I’ll post one last picture when I get it mounted on the wall…

Thanks for visiting!

    That’s exactly what I thought when i saw the picture — applique! It wasn’t until I took a more careful look that I thought, “Hmm that looks a bit odd for a quilt…” Looks like it will be a great addition.

    Oh; please tell me you won’t be hiding this lovely art project behind some ugly ol’ black electronic thing…..Get a wall anchor mount for the t.v. and use this lovely shelf to display another lovely.
