And now for something completely different! This post is a follow-up to Weekend Wardrobe Project
Last weekend, I refreshed one of my favourite possessions, the watchmaker’s cases I use to store earrings. They are aluminum storage boxes filled with tiny round containers. The lid of each box was backed with foam, to protect the glass tops of the little containers. It had flaked away and wasn’t looking pretty, so I lined the lid of each box with satin fabric:
This is part of the larger project of redecorating the master bedroom. Actually more like decorating (not redecorating) since it’s the first time the room has had a planned look! Last Fall, we moved all of our folded clothes to glass-fronted cabinets:
As a result, I didn’t have a surface to place my jewellery and accessories. It was suggested that I get a small vanity table and a wall mirror to put between the two units. But it’s a small space, and there is only 2 feet (60 cm) on either side of the cabinets. Then there is a night stand on each side of the bed, as shown below, so if the cabinets were pulled apart toward the corners of the room, I would not be able to open some of the glass doors:
Eventually, I bought a wall-mounted shelf with two drawers, that fit into a 12″ (30 cm) nook in a corner of the room. It remained in its flat-pack box for about 3 months until I found a wall mirror I liked!
Here’s the spot where the shelf and mirror fit into the room:
A close-up of the mirror – this is very bling-y for me 🙂
The bed has an old faux-wood headboard from a previous furniture set, and maroon curtains that don’t match the current duvet set. Across the room is a straight-backed chair that the cats have shredded with their claws. When those things have been taken care of, I will consider the room done!
Have you done any indoor projects this season?
