sneak peak!

i call him the grim keeper!  he’s the latest in my series of upcycled jewelry storage and display.  i can’t believe it, but i found this stainless tray at the thrift store.  i have no idea what it was, a spoon rest maybe?  now, with a little decoupage magic, it’s been transformed into a super cool tray to store your jewelry, wallet, cell phone…maybe even your skeleton keys.  ba-dum-bum tsccch!

he’ll be available soon at my etsy store once i get him ready for his close up.

off to make more jewelry storage!

i’ve had an amazing response for the new upcycled jewelry storage/display line that i’ve added to my etsy store, so i’m off to make more!  sneak peek: this weekend i found a silver tray at a thrift store that begs to be made into a skull.  can you imagine?  pictures to follow!

for now, here are some images from what i’ve made so far:

where to put it all?

what to do with all that cool jewelry?  well don’t be like me and just pile it on your dresser!  it’s messy, tangly, and you can’t see what you have.  i think it’s a proven fact that if you can see it, you’re more likely to use it.  surely some scientist has done a study on that.  right?

to solve this non-existential dilemma, i’ve created this one-of-a-kind upcycled jewelry board, created from rescued items: a pretty girl’s dress made from creamy yellow swiss dot and a frame.  with the pocket for rings, the grosgrain ribbon to hang earrings on, and the hooks for necklaces, we can get you organized.  at least in this area!

the sweet yellow swiss dot jewelry board is available at my etsy store for $40 USD.  more to come!  need one to match your decor?  your style?  shoot me an email (dogwoodandpoppy@gmail.com) and let’s see what i can put together!  surely with all the fabric, ribbon and doodads i own i could create something fabulous just for you.

as promised…upcycled jewelry storage

new to dogwood & poppy: storage with a side of snark.  for those of us have been accused of having too much crap and/or leaving it all over the place.

i created this one-of-a-kind upcycled tray from a thrift store find (the silver plate tray) with some paper, stickers, and ink.  i decoupaged the paper onto the tray, added the stickers and then stamped it so that it reads: “yes, but it’s MY crap”.  then i sealed it, so you can wipe it down with a damp cloth when needed.

i think it’s perfect for storing jewelry or whatever else you need: keys, cell phone, ipod, loose change, whatnot. put it in your bathroom and keep make-up or soap in it. give it as a gift to your messy valentine. or for someone who has it all…and now needs a place to put it. i can think of some men who would benefit from a place to put their crap…

the tray measures 9.5wide x 5.75high and is about half an inch deep. that’s a lot of room for crap!  it’s available at my etsy store for $22 USD plus shipping & handling.

sorry, the tray does not come with my crap; you have to supply your own. the necklace doesn’t come with the tray either, but you can buy it through my etsy store if you want.
