Makeover Monday – Fireplace Screen

Hello there everyone! It has been way too long since my last blog entry. As some of you know, I had the honor of taking part in the Craft and Hobby Association’s Designer Showcase. Most of my time and energy for the last few weeks went into creating a table display to represent me as a designer. The rest of my time off from blogging was spent overcoming one crisis after another, which I will have to share another day.

As for today, it is Makeover Monday and I am excited to share something I made over for my Designer Showcase display. When I got accepted into the Showcase, the first thing I did was find out the dimensions of my display area. The very next thing I did, was go on a quest for the perfect back drop. I went to every thrift store in my little town of Chico and it wasn’t until I reached the last one that I found the perfect piece! When I inquired about it, I was told it was part of a set and my heart sank. Fortunately, the owner was willing to split up the set and sold me the fireplace screen without the dresser. Thank you Odds and Ends for selling me one of the key components to my display.

Here is the fireplace screen before…..

and here it is after it’s makeover…..

My display was “Crafty Cutie’s Keys to Unlocking a Good Design.” Stay tuned for tomorrows blog where I will show you close ups of the houses. You will then see what each of the keys represents.

Wishing you smiles and sunshine,
