A soft, comfy spot for the shinies

Wooden frame from Goodwill painted white (to hide the frighteningly hideous 70's colors that probably were the cause of WHY it was at Goodwill). A scrap piece of cardboard to fit within was given a light amount of batting and then "upholstered" (with glue, don't get complicated on me) with muslin and tacked into the back of the frame. I made sure not to have the batting go out to the very edge of my cardboard so I wouldn't have such a hard time getting it to fit in the frame.

Some sewing pins stuck at an angle and now your shinies can dangle - organized and untangle....d


Oh come on, that was pretty good rhyming.



Total cost was (a guesstimated) paltry three dollars.

I always love a good rhyme! That frame is super cute! Nice job! I love hunting at the Goodwill for treasures.

Hope you are having a great week! I am loving this weather so much. My garden is going crazy!

Paint is a magic worker when it comes to hiding yick stuff from Good will. I"m sure you've never heard me say something like this before to you so I'll say it anyways, "Smart idea!"
