Today's post is a little different to recent posts in that I don't have a free tutorial for you but I really wanted to share with you this fabulous jewellery display.
No doubt you've seen plenty of these around on the internet but this one was made especially for me by my father and he's done such a fabulous job on it - I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.
My brief was that it needed to have mesh for hanging earrings, a rail for bracelets and hooks to hang necklaces from (I still need to screw those in along the bottom of the frame). The only other thing I specified was that it be black and white. You can clearly see the white frame. And that lovely white scallop in the background is actually curtain lace placed against black cardstock, so he fulfilled the brief perfectly.
But what I love about the overall look of the display is how the white-on-black has become a shade of grey - it's the perfect foil to show off my jewellery without taking anything away from it. White-on-grey is a much more elegant look than white and black!
I am one very lucky girl because not only did he make me one, but he made me a second one to match! I think my dad has spoiled me.
'Til next time......
