DIY Bracelet holder

I found this at a thrift store for 50 cents.  

He was practically begging me to take him home.

I notice that something is missing from his top -  a knob perhaps?

So being the kind heart that I am, I decided to take him home and upcycle him into something else.

Everybody deserves a new life every now and then - right?!

Enter bracelets.

I LOVE bracelets!  (Can you tell?!)

Do you see my cathedral quilt dresser runner that my mom made for me??  Isn't it beautiful!)

Seemed to me that I needed a bracelet holder for my bracelets.

So, out came the spray paint.

A few coats later and drying time. I have....

 a new bracelet holder!

It's so much better than all being jumbled together.  

It's a good thing!

  1. Oh Susan...two comments...
    First, what a great thing to think of. A perfect repurposing. I wonder if it is supposed to be as it is and held papertowels in a kitchen?

    Second, I noticed the quilt the second I scrolled down and am glad you answered my question right away. What a beauty that your mother made you!!! I can imagine you really treasure it!

  2. I love the quilt your Mom made for you. Once again, you are doing your thing of making something from nothing.
    I love that in black and boy, you sure do love bracelets and that shows them off so well. Happy hunting.

  3. Great idea, and so creative! I love bracelets too, by the way. :-)

    That quilt runner that your mom made is gorgeous. What a treasure.

  4. What a wonderful idea! You certainly cannot beat the price either.
