Transforming Necklace Holders

It seems I can never leave well enough alone lol! 

Hum....How could I transform necklace displays?


 I am partnering with Barr Display for the Fancy Flea November 2 in Plant City Florida and we have been busy picking out inventory from their store to bring.  


Our vision is to set up displays of their products at the Flea along with some ideas on how to transform them. I would never mess with these perfect necklace displays, but since Barr Display gets them from overseas by the crate there can be a few perfectly imperfect pieces, like the one below.......Transformation time!


There will be new ones for sale but,we will also be offering the perfectly imperfect ones for sale at the flea greatly discounted for you to transform


I sprayed this one with heirloom white paint and stenciled the chandelier and Paris, then laid lace over the top and sprayed it with black paint.


I transformed this one with paint then transferred the graphics from Graphics Fairy with the blender pen method and finished it with dark wax.


We will also be bringing these leatherette displays, they come in white and sell for $3.25.   Nope, I couldn't leave them alone either.....I sprayed the big one with pink paint and stenciled "Boutique" in white.




Well, It's five weeks till the Fancy Flea.....Crunch time, fun time.   I'm so excited to vendor at the Fancy Flea again, the last one I did was April 2012.  One of the very BEST parts is seeing and meeting blogging and Facebook friends.  It doesn't matter if you are a shopper or a vendor there is nothing better then spending a fun day with like minded people who totally "Get" and love the same things you do.  It's a carnival atmosphere filled with inspiration, friendship, and a lot of Yacking!!

I can't wait!!!
  
Happy Creating
Carol

It's amzing what a few change with paint and lace can change a neutral item, and gaive it personality and beauty, and you are the best to do that.

Once again you have worked your magic. These are much more appealing than the unfinished versions. Tres Chic Dear...
Next could it possibly be the wooden hangers that you transform???

Very Cool! I have a bunch of Black Velvet ones I should do something with but my mind is not as creative as yours!! Hmmm, looking at all your Flea Market Treasures to Sell, I am wondering if you would want to ship an Order just for me~ ;)

Huggs, Nancy

Hi Carol, The fact that you can not leave well enough alone, is what makes you a star:) That's is what we love about you most of all. Everything around you goes from coal to diamond . . . if I lived closer, I would ask you to do a make-over on me, LOL. Have fun at The Fancy Flea . . . we are expecting lots of photos :)
Keep smiling,
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
