Creole Cottage 8: Table & Shelves

Marie Laveau needed shelves for her bottles of herbs and potions. I built them from scraps of wood and trim and painted them. The labels on the jars were from a printie. The coal stove lacks a stovepipe in this photo.

Marie also needed a little worktable. Do you recognize the legs on this table? They were left over from a Greenleaf Orchid, the roof ridge trim bits that weren't used. With the top knob trimmed off and a couple of scraps of wood, they worked perfectly. Marie seems a bit overly pleased, but then she'd been used to a totally empty room, so any addition was for the better!
