Another project

Remember this? I thought it might be fun to make something pretty and useful to store Savanna's bows (the bows that go on this headband). It wasn't that necessary, really, but the bows were just lying around, and I was sort of inspired by my necklace project. So I made this:
The bows clip onto the slips of ribbon that are just laced through the fabric, which is glued onto some cardboard and glued inside the frame. I like it in a frame, because it's kind of like some kooky art or something.

I also had to post these pictures of Savanna's armoire. Yes, she has an armoire. But it's not like we bought it especially for her! It was our entertainment center, and when we got a TV stand, we re-purposed this to her room. Man, she really is spoiled. Who am I kidding? :) Anyway, I got a kick out of how many dresses were hanging and how many pairs of shoes are there. Keep in mind that most of this stuff was given to me! The last two dresses on the right are from Ross, and I got them for a killer deal! (Third from the left is from Wallyworld, and it'll probably be her Easter dress. Or maybe I'll just stop pretending I'm not all-out girly and spoil us with photos of her in all three....)

I love the bow frame, so adorable. It's official I totally want a baby girl next, those dresses are precious.

Awesome. I think when she gets big enough to start getting into things, you're really going to appreciate having those bows in that frame and up high. I am ALWAYS trying to find the girls hair things and I don't even keep them in their room!

And the dresses are darling!

You totally need another blog of all of the creative stuff you come up with!!! Super cute!
I love how you changed the entertainment center into something else, I would have just put it in the basement and let it collect dust.

You are way to clever! I LOOOVE how you turned the entertainment center into an armoire. That is awesome. I think I reached my creative peak on those dressers, I'm done for a while. I think I am just in survival mode for a while.

K, I am so in love with that frame. You probably got it at a thrift store or something...but if you didn't, pray tell...where did you find it?

Rachel said...

Lara, I just got the frame at good old Wal-Mart. :) I think it was 6 or 7 dollars.
