Antique Fabric Boxes

I needed something to add to my cat display on top of my tv unit.
So, I made some antique looking fabric boxes. I used a bit too much water in the antique solution, so they warped a bit more than I wanted, lol. Not sure if I will leave them as is, or sand more and add more stain? As you can see, they are a bit lopsided.



This is the area, I am working on. I think I need another quilt or textile on the left side to warm it up some more.
The angle is not how I see it, I am normally looking up, so it looks better than a straight on shot. I am thinking a wooden sign for the backdrop with a cat theme, of course. The boxes on the left are store bought, sale aisle special at 3 dollars.

what fun these boxes are , I think a little prim quilt hanging on the wall behind the display would look great
maybe even a little doll quilt of hourglass blocks or log cabin blocks.

I think your boxes being slightly warped are what give them so much charm. I think that they look great.
