I love trees and sparkly things. My mom gave me some antique crystal knobs from a house we lived in when I was a kid. I didn’t want to throw them in a drawer because they were beautiful AND sentimental. So I was inspired one day while I was ironing and staring towards the kitchen window. I strung them on clear jewelry wire and added a prismatic glass bead base. The added bonus to the window was the cast iron bird feeder my daughter in-love (Erin) had given me.
And the next thing I have an abundance of and seem to “collect” are old chairs. But did you ever think about removing the back of the chair? Me neither, until I bought one at a garage sale with the back already removed. There was enough indentation to make it a shadow box table.
I painted the inside black and attempted to line with some fabric I already had. I enjoyed placing treasured notes my boys had written to me when they were little guys.
I bought a glass table top (CHEAP at half price!) from Hobby Lobby and wallah….a little display table. (not the greatest photo angle, but hopefully you’ll get the concept)
