Oh no , not another makeover !

Sorry but this will be the last one for a little while.
I covered the inset of an old picture frame with pretty papers and added a couple of scrapbooking odds and ends and then screwed in some hooks .
The frame was painted in the nicest green but it hasn't come across very well in the photo .
The hooks are for my daughter to hang her jewellery on .
Now if I can just get her to clean her room !
Hopefully my next post I will be asking for pattern testers for my new softie .
 I think this is probably why I have been doing so many makeovers lately as I've been putting off the pattern writing .
Maybe not such a good way to run a business .......

It's gorgeous, I love the papers you've used - and the jewelry will look like art too!

Sarah said...

Recycling makeovers are the best! I think that's a great idea for your daughter's jewellery.

How exciting to be making a pattern, well done.

What a great idea. Another idea is to make a cork board out of a large picture frame.

Hey Clare! Your makeover project looks great. Hmmm ... I think I'd need a LOT more hooks to organise MY jewelry! Tee! Hee! Hee! Now back to instruction writing for you ... I can crack the whip, cos I've just finished the instructions I've been procrastinating about for a fortnight! Tee! Hee! Hee! Do you get the feeling that there are NO designers out there that like writing instructions! :0) Have fun! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Great idea - getting teens to organise their jewellery and rooms can be challenging.
