Adding Jewels and Porcelain Flowers

I know what my "regulars" that shop my antiques booth like and that's a little bling.  My shelves at the shop were getting bare and I needed some "Smalls" so, I up cycled this creamer and some vanity items


All of these items started out the standard gold or silver and got a coat of Heirloom white satin spray paint


Then I spruced them up with jewels I attached with E-6000 glue


I love these hairspray holders/hiders


This one I used a porcelain flower I chipped off a damaged nik nack...Tutorial HERE


I usually price these items around $18-$20


Sometimes just a little somethin, somethin, makes all the difference

I'm off to have a few days of fun on a whirlwind getaway, I'll be back soon with pictures, have a great week!

Happy Creating!
Carol

I love how you painted and added bling. I have one of those hairspray holders my aunt gave me in a goldish tone. I also have the trinket box t go with it but the cherub is missing off of it. Take care, Darlene

OK, I think you might have just given me an about face. I am in the middle of reorganizing my vanity so that stuff looks prettier. I was going with crystal containers, but now I'm pondering more of an heirloom white look.

Hmmm....
Or a combination....
Or somethin'
