There were a few additions I knew I wanted to make to the shelf and lately they've really come together.
I was worried about my sewing machine scratching the surface since it will be moved a lot so I came up with a simple place mat to put underneath it. I love the way the fabric looks with the pink box and the red shelf (it's the same fabric I used for Catie's chair).
I also wanted a pretty dish to sit on top where I could keep the items that get used the most often like a seam ripper, scissors and pins. I had planned on stopping by Value Village to find something that I could spray paint but I found this glass, black dish at Walmart for only $6. I figured a can of spray paint would cost about that much and I really liked the dish. It's the perfect size and hold just what I need it too.
