Cutest Baby Gift EVER!

I am so pleased with the outcome of this baby gift and think it's the





 I was lucky to find this unique old magazine rack at a garage sale. It is the biggest one I have ever seen.
I painted it up for a cousin that is having her first baby. But before I painted it, I used 4 inch vinyl lettering down the sides. After painting it, I just pulled off the vinyl letters to expose the wood and did a bit of distressing and sealing.
I had fun shopping for children's books to fill it...
I think it is so cute and useful being two sided.

Don't you think it's a unique idea for a baby gift?
