One day my daughter and I were out shopping and on our way down the mall we spotted this:
Jewellery Box. $20 Handyman Special. Sold as Is.
Handyman I thought? What about Handy woman?
Both the rounded side cupboards had come off their hinges, after being hit by people's shopping trolleys and the paint work was looking a little ordinary. Somebody had pulled the ring holder section apart.
I walked into the shop, quickly paid cash and got them to put a sold sign on it. The lady told me the jewellery console was originally $149. Guess which shop? Homeart! You know, it used to be called Copperart. Amazing where you can find things right?
Anyway, my daughter and I were able to restore the jewellery console quickly and easily. My daughter sanded the whole thing down (good girl!), and I gave it a fresh coat of paint. We bought some new screws and attached the side cupboards.
We decided to ditch the ring holder and just lined that section with some French sheet music.
What more could a 10 year old girl want, than her own armoire to store her bling?
All styling by my daughter. I think she did a great job!
