1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New Jewelry Rack on: January 25, 2010 07:39:41 AM
I love jewelry. Immensely. However, I never seemed to be able to locate the pieces that I wanted at any given time. My necklaces always ended up on the floor, or in a bag...you get the idea.

Anyway, this is my solution to the problem. Jewelry boxes never seemed to accommodate my things, so I decide to come up with my own answer.

I made this using a key rack I purchased at Wal Mart. I spray painted it black, then decoupaged these wonderful pictures I scored from an old issue of Venus that I had. Several layers of sealant later, I spray painted the hooks pink and hot glued some pearls around it. I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I'd love to add a turquoise mini boa behind the pearls, but the gf thinks that would make it tacky...

I think it would be simpler to spray it on the inside with some sort of paint. A light coat. That should even out your problem without blocking too much light. Or maybe take some overhead projector film, maybe a fun red or purple, and tape it inside. Smiley

I find this to be...adorable. My puppy and your puppy share the same name, though I chose to spell it Pheobe. Mostly because I was pretty sure that is how it was spelled, and I don't mind the eccentricity anymore.

My Pheobe is a Bug or Boston Terrier/Pug mix.

Alright, as I was recently doing some hunting online I came across an old gumball machine. I have since purchased it, and I will be picking it up today.

Everything I read online says that beta fish need at least 1/2 a gallon of water, but preferably one gallon per fish. I would imagine that my machine will accommodate at least this. If it doesn't I will figure out some other purpose for my machine. After all, a gumball machine is pretty cool all on its own.

One modification I will be making for my tank however, is drilling some holes in the top of the metal cap, and figuring out how to maneuver some sort of filtration system.

Macgirl I will keep you updated on my progress.

This was an awesome idea! My favorite crafty projects are things reconstructions.

There will probably be one in my home very soon.
