So this is the sister to my last painted end table http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=199438.0
Instead of Gypsy this one is Dutch. I used some old pages from a great children's book called Children of Other Lands (the bindings had fallen apart.Then I glued a little dutch shoe ship to the shelf.

Very cute table!  Those words from the book are hilarious, about the "strange" clothes and the running of the country.  My husband is Dutch, I will have to show this to him.

The whole book is like that-it was written in 1919. I tried to juxtapose the sweet pictures with the rather American-centric writing!!

I think that probably people didn't wear those clothes in most parts of the Netherlands when the book was published, either Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
