i found this odd book shelf at the thrift store, and quickly saw the potential. after a little wood glue and lots of paint, it turned out to be one of my favorite pieces!
ta da! there's a lot going on here, so let's break it down:
- mirror: thrifted and painted
- antlers: found
- cork: sticky on the back; from the hardware store
yup, I FOUND THESE!! yes, i was that excited, they're huge! david and i went on a long trail run this weekend and at the top of this heinous hill, i looked down to find these deer antlers. it make the whole run worth it! i made dave carry them back the whole way, so glad he didn't trip and poke his eye out!
at first, i couldn't figure out what to do with the blank slate on front that was screaming for attention. then i remembered i had a roll of sticky cork board! perfect for little notes, inspiration pieces or orders to fill- it's my favorite part of this makeover.
remember all the little things i found on our nature walk? i finally figured out what to do with them! i found this shadow box while out thrifting and gave it a coat of grey spray paint- then pinned all my little foundlings to it.
it even has shelves on the side, which make it the perfect craft organizer for my sewing room. everything's neatly organized (for now) and easy to get to.
