Before - Jewelry Tray
After - I painted it green and added some little hooks and nails for a jewelry display. It looks a little rustic in the photo because I dropped paint on the felt in the back so I ended up painting that as well. It looks better in person then in the photo. In hindsight, I should have used masking tape to protect the felt before I painted. I hung this on our bedroom wall for easy access to my earrings and rings.
Before - A little shadow box
After - I painted it a greenish/blue and sanded the edges a little to let the old color of gold shine through so it looks a little rustic/shabby chic.
I would like to hang this near the door so hubby and I will always know where to find our keys.
I also found these. I have wanted big vintage Christmas bulbs since I saw a cute idea at an antique store last Christmas which I plan to recreate with these bulbs. (picture at end)
What I plan to make with the Christmas bulbs
