A Crafty Tale: Jewelry Station, Part I

In the first of what I’m sure will be a captivating series about a project that has been forming in my mind for two years, but has been put on the back burner. . (oooh we need a kitchen, waaah we have to insulate the attic… It’s one thing after another and meanwhile, my accessories have been languishing!!) I now present the first post about my new jewelry station. I can hear you cheering from here!

This is one of the least expensive, most DIY of my DIY experiments and so far so good! Don’t you.love it when that happens?! I fixed up a chair and table for my vanity. I’m halfway through with the jewelry storage parts. And I’m plotting the little mirror that will hang next to all of it.

So for Part I of the first part of the wall hangings around the vanity… I give you the rough draft of what will (I hope) be a very cute mirror.

The base is  a $1 wood frame from a craft store. I am going to paint it light blue with some leftover paint samples I have in the basement. Then, I’m going to glue a cheap piece of mirror to the back. Once that is all set, I will glue tiles to the front in some configuration like the layout I have here.

The tiles were taken from kitchen backsplash samples that I ordered when I was deciding on kitchen things. I painted some with craft paint, some with glue and glitter, and they all will look lovely in my blue bedroom! Oooh, and with the jewelry organizing things you haven’t even SEEN yet!! Well, stay tuned 🙂
