Flea market find

I recently picked this up at a flea market in Norwich.

It's a key cupboard.
Except I don't have enough keys to have a cupboard devoted to them.
No, I need a bracelet cupboard.

The first thing I did was change the picture on the front. Nothing against those flowers but this shell image is much brighter.
I've just slipped it in the frame so I can change it out when I feel like something different.

I also changed the paper on the inside to liven it up a bit and fit the decor of my bedroom. Which is basically any kind of pink.
I hardly ever wear bracelets because I keep them in a box and forget about them, but having them on display here means I can't help but remember them.

I stuck some photos on the inside of the door and instead of just blu-tac ing them on I used some lace trim and double sided tape for a cute play on washi tape.

Re-purposing stuff is fun.
Have any of you done it recently?


  1. I think this is a super neato idea! It's really cute C:
    And I love the added touch of lace to stick the photo's on the inside of the door. Just lovely!

  2. the different picture really transforms the case.

  3. I just checked out your art and you are pretty amazing. I am doing a feature on my blog ( where I interview artists. If you are interested in participating please let me know.
