I've finally been "chipping" away at some little projects in my bedroom... the bedroom redo I started oh about 18 months ago. I'd been trying to give away one of our dressers to make the room work a bit better. Since my house is a small farmhouse the bedroom is pretty small, just 12 by 13 feet or so. With one of the big dressers gone the room functions so much better... and I purged tons of old clothes in the process! My new dresser is the cute Ikea dresser I painted in Duck Egg chalk paint from ASCP about a year ago. Yup... it's my dresser and my nightstand now! I took time to clean out everything, even my jewelry box that rests on my nightstand. I'm not a fancy jewelry girl, mostly silver, but those necklaces really get tangled hanging out in the box... hmmm...
I had the idea to reuse this little tramp art styled frame. It's missing one of it's corners AND it had no backing when I purchased it for just $.99 at my local thrift store. I had originally used it for another project that I had decided to change... so I had already cut a scrap of foam core and covered it with a combination of fabric and burlap.
I was planning to hang a number of my necklaces, the ones I wear most frequently, but was afraid to just use a pin to hang from. I had some beads and decided to thread the pin through the bead before attaching it to the foam core backing... this gives a bit larger spot to keep the necklaces from slipping off.
AND it's kind of an eclectic bit of art to add to my bedroom wall!
Here you can see the whole little vignette again... it hangs just above my jewelry box which keeps it handy.
And perhaps you have noticed my drop cloth curtains I finally finished?
And my dark bedding? Although I'd LOVE to have a light or white quilt on my bed it wouldn't be practical in my house. Between my husband....
Oh, and the "cone head" dog has made a full recovery and has been able to ditch the cone again!
PS... if you haven't entered, there's still time for my Ramsign GIVEAWAY!
