DIY Jewelry display stands

Hello friends. How have you been ?

DIY JEWELRY STAND

I’m delighted to share with you guys a new development –  I have been designing handmade statement jewelry !!!   What a leap – in terms of creativity, atleast !!!

Please drop me a like at https://www.instagram.com/madelineposh/

We held a trunk show at The Villa a few months back; the details of which will be in an upcoming post.  One of the things, that I realized is that most of my necklaces were long and most of the display stands, I had, were short display units for the table stands.  Hence, I improvised.

I bought some white foam sheet and designed a display stand – however, quickly I realized that the stand was not large enough, inorder to allow my neck pieces to hang freely.

Also, it meant that I would need to make atleast 70 of these boards ! Plan A did not work out.

Plan B –  I’ve stored several bulletin boards (cork ones) in the shed. Time to make use of them.

I decided that these bulletin boards would be ideal since they could carry multiple strands and would be sturdy as well. However alittle prepping was in order. Here are some photos explaining what I’ve done.

A couple of coats of paint, and we’ll be ready in no time.

One of these boards had a large hole in it. I decided that for this one, we would place some dark blue, thin fabric over it, so as to hide the damage.  It worked so well coz we did not even have to glue or staple it – the push pin did the job !!!

Tip – Cork soaks up alot of paint.  The final coat is drying here.

I spray painted these push-pins to a dark shade of grey/black. These would be the hooks on my display board.

VOILA !!!

I love the look and how perfectly, everything fit in.

These are easy to store and very convenient to carry around too.

The length of the boards, helps to bring out the flow and drop of the necklaces.

Its a win win situation for me.

I love upcycling and I love to repurpose mundane objects.  How about you ? What was your last upcycle project ?

I am sharing this post with all my blog friends here.

The Courtyard/ Garden transformation ~ part 2

For those of you, who arent aware of whats going on, please view my first post on the Courtyard/Garden transformation ~ 1

One of the first things that I had bought for the courtyard were these very cute wall mounting terracotta half pots. 6 years later, not only have they aged but the color has turned really pale and ugly.  So naturally, that was on top of the to do list.

Unfortunately these pots are mounted in such a way, that they cannot be removed for cleaning purposes, hence I had to manage painting them while they were mounted which seems like quite a challenge. Therefore, I’ll just have to give myself that much leavage for the marks spread on the side 😦

The next project was this bench that I have had for a couple of years which has also borne the brunt of the heat and weather. I have been so inspired by all the coastal & shabby chic look these days, that I decided to paint it white. It isnt perfect by any measure but I love the new look of the bench. So inviting and ideal of an afternoon tea !

The bench was moved from the old location, closer to the entrance and the area behind it with the wire rack where we previously had wine leaves spirally and which later turned into a junk magnet  ~~~ was finally cleared !!!

Although it seems the progress is very slow, it is really a lot of hard work and I just know, its going to be worth it. Inshallah. There are many more projects at hand, so I’m just going to link this post to the following parties now :-
