SYTYCD Project # 1 with Tutorial

Don't forget to vote for your favorite project @ So You Think You Can Decorate!


~An Accessory for Your Accessories~


Accessories can make a room a decorating masterpiece, or a complete disaster. Whether fun, pulled-together, eclectic, or classy, the accessories effect and portray the living, breathing, personality of the room. It is no different when an outfit is coordinated. The earrings, necklaces, brooches, or rings tell whether I am flirty and playful, or dark, sultry, and sophisticated. The perfect accessory for your room, can also be perfect for organizing your jeweled accessories.  


 

Using burlap, natural jute, cabinet hardware, and an open-back frame, I created an earring & necklace holder that will match my shabby chic, turquoise, bedroom.
 
The frame was primed, painted using a "white-wash" technique, and antiqued with sandpaper to add definition to the edges. 
 

I measured and drilled five holes in the bottom portion of the frame for the hardware. I used a combination of hardware styles, all of which can be found at Anthropologie. My personal favorite is the turquoise rose that is in the center of the piece.



Item List (what I used is in parenthesis)
-Open back picture frame (Hobby Lobby -11x14)
-Craft paint/ Primer / paintbrush (Folk Art craft paint in Seamist)
- 5 knobs (Anthropologie)
-Burlap the size of frame opening
-Natural Jute (Hobby Lobby)
Tools Used
-Drill
-Hot glue gun
-Hammer
-Sandpaper

Total Cost - $42
*A little side note about the cost: The hardware from Anthropologie really added up...if I hadn't been on a time crunch I would have waited to buy it on sale/ checked ebay/ found antique hardware. Look around! This could easily be done for less with a little time and  effort!*

That's absolutely beautiful! You did a fantastic job. The great thing is, I think I could do something like that as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog last week. I'm sorry it's taken so long for me to return the favor. I'd been having Internet issue. If you plan to post something for Wordless or Wordfilled Wednesday tomorrow, I'd love for you to stop by and link your post up on my linky. :)

Londen @ Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

This is so cute! I love that you gave us such a clear tutorial.

Kelly said...

I knew I recognized those knobs from Anthropologie!

By the way, the shots of you holding the baby and painting at the same time are probably the cutest thing in the world. You're both gorgeous!
