DIY Vintage Frame Jewelry Organizer

19 Sep

This is quite a late post so forgive me.

I got this vintage frame at an estate sale for $1.00, don’t you just love that.

Anyway,  it was pretty ugly

So I was thinking of ways to use it and I had always wanted to create a jewelry organizer, so I did!

So I did what I do best, spray painting.

Stapled some modern trellis fabric to the front, pounded in some nails and screwed in some hooks and TA-DA!

For my earrings I strung jute twine across the frame, for an easy on and off.

Sorry for the lack of photos I forgot to take all the in between shots. Oops!

So today you get a super fast project.

Hope you liked it!

Our Pretty Blue Door

27 Apr

Well we he did it!

Our front door is now a pretty gray blue! Isn’t it gorgeous! I’m in love.

In case you forgot this is what our door used to look like, kind of orangey and scratched to all hell, courtesy of Sarge our pug.

And here’s how it all went down…

First step! Sanding!

We had the primer tinted to our color, which is key.

Then we puttied any imperfections.

This stuff is bad ass and drys super fast!

Next up! Sanding again! Woah we did a lot of sanding.

PAINT TIME!

We chose Benjamin Moore Wedgewood Gray at150%

After another good sanding, Ryan finally sprayed the finish coat. Look at my man in action.

We even did the interior side blue, I think it totally brightens up the room.

Don’t you?

Next up I want to get a retractable screen door (Thanks Jessica for the recommendation!!), update the door hardware and add a cute door knocker.

Hopefully my bank account will recover soon so I can make some purchases!
