I can be creative after all!

A couple of months ago, my mom and I went "junking". I came home with this old beat up rocking chair, the bottom was out and it was in really bad shape. But the back was really cool. I kept thinking what could I do with that?

So this is what I came up with. A rack to hold my jewelry. I hung this above the toilet in my bathroom so I can easily grab my jewelry. Hopefully this will make me wear it mor often. I used some antique glass drawer knobs for my hooks. I applied weathered wood to the original wood finish. Then applied a coat of buttercream paint. After that I used burnt umber oil paint and brush cleaner to antique it. Spray it with a couple of coats of "matte" spray to protect it, and voila! It's done.

  2. Beautiful ~ I love it! But if it is over the toilet, with my luck I'd drop my jewelry down the loo! I've done that before!
