I had lots of cardboard boxes to use after unpacking, and collected news paper from friends and family. Hooray for re-use!
Cut out the basic shape (mine is a little more basic than the original.)
Added a shelf...
It turned out pretty nicely, though you can't see much of the peach showing through in these pictures.
And it looks neat in my tiny room!
I am still considering rubbing some gold paint over it. We'll see.
