My great grandma gave me this old sewing cabinet but it wasn't big enough to hold all my sewing stuff so I use it to hold my dance clothes.  I wanted it to match my room so I painted it black and made a stencil of a dancer (its hard to tell in the pics but the stencil is pink)
hope you like it!

Thanks a lot you guys I'm glad you like it!!!  
I made the stencil myself out of two different images I found on google and I edited and cropped each of them and then I painted each one separate.

The shape of it is so lovely to begin with, the stencil really seems to echo that... very delicate, a bit art-nouveau-like.

I'm glad to see other people doing things with old sewing cabinets. It just seems they're so versatile, and are sort of an overlooked, underappreciated piece of furniture these days.

I have a few of them and use them as bedside and end tables.
