Jewelry Display

After a few years of a disorganized jewelry layout, I decided it was about time to get a hand on the mess.  Therefore, I walked around my house and found items I could use to finally organize my jewelry. 

The sconce to the left (which I pained with Heirloom White spray paint) was discovered at a thrift store.  The other hooks were extras I had laying around, perfect for additional necklace display.  

I brought in an extra washcloth rack to hang some of my bracelets; a three-tiered plate display from the kitchen to give additional space for storage; and extra bowls and plates for display.

Here are some other jewelry displays I found online...

1970's Dining Table Takes on a New Look

If you recall, we purchased this table several months ago - and wrapped up the project the night before our Thanksgiving feast!  We love the way it turned out!

We sprayed the chairs and table with Heirloom White spray paint.  Then, we sanded the edges for a vintage look. We then covered the cushions with a simple muslin fabric from Hobby Lobby. The table was purchased via Woodlands Online for $200 and we spent around $80 on spray paint and sealer and $15 on the fabric.  Not too shabby for a nice, large dining table.

I Plan to Make a Return!

Dear Fellow Followers,

It has been over two months since my last post - yikes!  I have been a little wrapped up in work and other things - like dealing with morning sickness.  Yes, my husband and I are expecting our first baby, a baby girl actually, early June 2012.  And we are thrilled!  Expect several upcoming posts on nursery plans!

Currently, I am uploading some photos of recent projects and will post some before and afters very soon!  In the meantime, enjoy the days few hours of 2011 and you will see a lot more of me in 2012. :)

Happy New Years!
