This project was thought up on one of the many snow days when I was so tired of playing school or Legos, that I collapsed on the kids' carpet and my eyes landed on a piece of furniture that we were going to throw away. A few holidays past, my lovely husband bought me a tall jewelry box that was beautiful and inexpensive, those were my requests! However, due to my accessories addiction, I outgrew the jewelry box and it was bound for the trash until my crafty light bulb sparked. I grabbed my two favorite Sharpie metallic paint pens and got to work.
Rather than full of my accessories, it is now full of the girls' accessories! And, believe it or not, they've kept is organized and just love their "unique accessory tower".
I decorated the sides with bows, arrows, and hearts
and the top with a favorite quote from my style idol, Audrey Hepburn, because really, no matter what is in your hair or on your body, it is what inside that makes us all pretty darn beautiful. Just a daily reminder for my girls...
Seems a bit odd to reference Teddy Roosevelt and Audrey Hepburn in the same post, but I'm a fan of his encouragement to make do with what you have. A big fan.
