I continued the work on the 'reading nook' yesterday and got all the panels done and installed. I just used cardboard for the panels...covered them with batting, then the material, and I just used these little brads to do the tufting. The tufting is very subtle, you can kind of see it in the third photo down if you look closely at the side panel.

I haven't sewn the cushion cover yet...I'll take my sewing machine in today and do that. Then I'll add a trompe l'oeil sleeping puppy to the drawer front and we'll pretty much be ready to hit the shop floor. I'd still love to find a little wall sconce to hang on the inside, but I'm not sure that'll happen.
I think I'll do the other cabinet in a more masculine theme....a gorgeous plaid perhaps?
