Coffee Mug Tree turned Jewelry Hanger

I Love Goodwill! Especially the one closest to our home because
seriously every time I go I find something and it's always at such a good price!
I've been needing a place to put my rings & bracelets and I had them all in a white
plate from IKEA but I just didn't like it! So when I saw this coffee mug tree at Goodwill
I instantly thought about using it as a jewelry display/organizer! As soon as I got home
I put my rings, some earrings and bracelets on it....

You see it was only $1.99! yay!!
I liked the idea. The color not so much! So I did what I do
to almost all of the things I paint and painted it white! Here is the
naked little tree. ( Behind it you can see one of the prints I have for sale in my shop)..
and here it is after it's first coat...
I used the free little sample I got from Valspar in Ultra White..
I painted this at night and let it dry overnight and this is 
what it looked like the next morning...
and here it is all accessorized...
and a before an after...
What do you think? Are you sick of the white yet?
I hope not because it's one of my favorite colors
and I plan on using it on a couple more projects!

  2. Very cute! I've also seen where people use paper towel holders and straw containers. Great job painting. I usually have drips all over mine. I have a new love for paint... I'm getting better at it.
