Something different today! DS1 is always losing his wallet in the mornings, inevitably resulting in a frantic search of the whole house to see where he left it last (it's usually underneath something..... LOL) so I dug out this shelf and tray from my huge stash of wooden decoratable items as a solution.
The shelf has only had a very simple makeover - it started life as a plain pine semi-circle, I painted it silver and added copper nailheads around the edge. I also put hooks underneath it to hold the items which are too long for the keyrack where DH insists on hanging them..... :-) I used Viva Decor precious metals paint in silver - worth noting that I had to varnish it, after 24 hours drying time, the silver pigment was still coming off on my fingers, I haven't had this problem with any other colour I have used from this range! But a coat of acrylic varnish did the trick!
The tray was glimmer misted in a couple of shades of brown plus bronze. Then I stamped various gears and swirls in Stazon, timber brown and cherry red. I added a piece of self adhesive green baize to the base to stop it rubbing on the shelf.
Ds1 has even remembered to put the wallet in it, ooh, a couple of times at least........
