1) Dresser area and jewelry display.
2) Gallery wall in N's room.
I'm proud to say I finished 1.734. Dresser area and jewelry display. Check!
My dresser area was orginally a hodge podge of mismatched stuff and my jewelry box was overflowing (unfortunately not with diamonds). Proof:
It was time for a fresh new look. I wanted the area to be light and bright, but I couldn't paint the dresser (boo.) so I started scavenging around the house looking for things that were white. Luckily I have a love of milk glass and have collected quite a few pieces over the last year. I grouped them all together and used them as new storage/display for my jewelry:
After making the jewelry display I still had a few other pieces of milk glass left over so I paired them with my lamp and put them all together on the opposite side of the dresser. My 50 cent garage sale bird certainly has the spotlight!
Last thing I needed was something for the center of the dresser area. Back to the basement to scavenge for some more stuff. The 2 small white frames came came from TJ Maxx (a few years ago), everything else is from garage sales. I found the the 3 large white frames in a "free" box. The orange striped fabric is a hand towel that was 50 cents, and the vintage handheld mirror was $1. The orange frame in the middle was an upcycle projet. I bought it for 50 cents, painted it orange and added some patterned paper in the openings
And the Before/After.
*I love 3M Command Strips. I don't know if I'll still be saying this when I go to take stuff down, but it made putting everything up very easy!
