” Not only did I design the jewelry but I also designed the jewelry display stand !! “
Some of my favorite words are, create, creativity, craft, upcycle and repurpose ! What are yours ?
Like I explained in my previous post, I have been designing jewelry. We held two trunk shows, and I found that we were short of display units for my leather jewelry collection.
Alittle scavenging into our shed, and my trusted wingman was back with a full size narrow mirror that we had dumped in there, a few years back !! I bet your asking why I stored a broken mirror stand, right ? My husband asks that ALL THE TIME !!! I’ll give you the reply, I give him – We’ll find a use for it someday. (not that he ever believes me 🙂 ) But for once – THAT DAY, finally came !!
Obviously, the stand looked worn out but I decided, to keep the shabby chic distress look on the white border, but paint the cork board, within.
The diehard optimist in me, only noticed that the wood was sturdy and the size was perfect to hold as many as 40 pairs of earings !!
A couple of coats of paint should do the trick.
I mixed some white acrylic to a pastel shade of peach and pink to get this color.
A dozen or so nails on the side to hang the strings at and voila ! We have a display unit to hang our jewelry – from TRASH !!!
Absolutely in love with this piece !! Not only did I design the jewelry but I also designed the jewelry display stand !!!! 🙂

I thought breaking a mirror was supposed to bring bad luck but it doesn’t seem to have at all in your case – what a great upcycle.
🙂 oh I just realized that !! Thank God, that mirror broke, or I would’ave had to figure out another way. Thank you for visiting me and leaving some love here, Julie.
A very clever upcycle. Thanks for sharing at the Snickerdoodle Create Bake Make Party.
Thank you Debra.
Great to put the frame of the mirror to use, after it broke!
You probably meant no harm,
but please READ https://thejeshstudio.wordpress.com/2018/09/10/new-here/
where it says the meme/challenge owners need to use different images than the post they are “sharing” with other parties (because it is a form of advertisement).
Thanks for solving that in your next post, because there are several on the link list who have their own meme/challenge – so we need to be fair to each participant:) Have a great week and thank you for linking to All Seasons!!
Awesome and brilliant! I love repurposing stuff. I hoard branches I prune off our fruit trees. lol
Hi Susie. I love repurposing branches too, especially for mixed media projects. Thank you for visiting me Su-sieee.
What a great way to reuse that mirror frame! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
This is a great use of something that would have just gone to the trash bin.
Exactly !! “Thats” what really lifts my spirits – seeing something that was destined for the thrash bin – is now displaying handmade items !! 😉
