This is one of my all time favourite shabby chic makes – it’s such a simple idea but looks absolutely stunning! The display is made from an old frame with twisted wire stapled across the back. You could adapt it a bit – perhaps using a bigger frame for different jewellery items, or using small hooks at the back to hold the wire. See Kevin and Amanda’s fabulous full tutorial here.
This is such a pretty table! It uses printed water decal paper to get the gorgeous design in place, which is much easier than it looks! The full tutorial starts on this page, with more pictures of the fabulous finished item – Touchthewood.co.uk.
