Pinterest Challenge 2


It's time for another Pinterest Challenge - and I'll admit, I'm cheating a bit this round. I'm out of town for a while, so I'm going to share a couple of projects I finished before I left - the first challenge had me so pumped up on projects I just couldn't stop.  First up, my ombre dresser:

The Inspiration


My Version    
This was such a simple way to give a fun splash of color to some very boring nightstands.

Next up - and even easier, a towel rack necklace holder.

The Inspiration



My Version
The necklace holder came together when I ran across the two towel bars for $2 in the As-Is area of Ikea - don't you love it when you find exactly what you need for next to nothing?

I love that my necklaces are easy to see - it means they get worn more often.

I listened to Priscillia Ahn's new album while I painted - the whole thing is great, but this track is a favorite: I Don't Have Time to Be In Love Pin It

That necklace holder is a great idea! My system currently is a bunch of hooks screwed onto the side wall of my closet. This is MUCH better. I'm going to try it.

And who doesn't love an ombre dresser??

Ms. Ahn is one of my favs.
What a great idea for the necklaces. I'm a creature of habit and rarely change what hangs around my neck, but if I did, I'd sure be up for that display.

So cool! I love the projects you picked. They turned out great.
Gotta love Pintrest...and blogging. Without them I'm afraid I'd have no creative juice whatsoever.
