Before and After Transformation

Yes, I'm back. Did the whole bed rest, baby in the NICU, daily hospital visits for 2 weeks thing and now that my little man is 7 weeks old I feel life returning to normal and I actually have motivation and energy to do stuff:) But, we're all wonderfully healthy, thanks for asking.

Sometimes when you're walking down the aisles of a thrift store something catches your eye . . .

Do you see the potential too? I mean c'mon!

My husband's exact words when he saw it, "That thing is freakin' ugly."

Even my little boy is trying to destroy it, lol

Well, after some black spray paint, damask fabric and ribbon I ADORE IT!

$2 and 15 minutes later I have this perfect jewelry holder. I hot glued the ribbon on in 1 inch intervals, so the earrings wouldn't slide around.

(And yes, I have a thing for gigantic, dangly, somewhat obnoxious earrings.)

The little bowl at the bottom is perfect for holding my bracelets and flower clips and pins. It hangs on the wall of our master, just outside the closet. Don't worry, my husband retracted the "freakin' ugly" comment, hehe.

I know, I know, you wish it was yours!
