I was never a Girl Scout.
If I had been, perhaps my dresser, closet, floor – uh, let’s stop there – would not so easily reach a state of total (creative) disarray? Perhaps.
I am, however, a girl. And a bargain scout. And a fashion scout. And a scout of all things vintage, retro, and awesome.
So when I spotted the random sweetness of this Girl Scout sign at my fave Hunt & Gather (for mere pocket change – $7), I knew it belonged on top of my dresser.
However, there wasn’t much room on top of my dresser.
Because being a scout means I love options: Finding them. Wearing them. Displaying them. Piling them up until they outgrow all my hooks and create a tangled mess of bedazzled possibilities.
So, this weekend – after bouncing the vague concept around in my mind for at least a month – I finally pulled out the hammer, tapped in a few nails,
fully accessible options and possibilities.
By now I was on a roll, so I grabbed my glue gun and whipped up a trio of magnetic blossoms – based on an idea I had seen at a junk fair (mini pastry tins + circles of fabric + buttons + magnets). I used them to hold a few more necklaces on my metal cabinet.
..left a few of the heavier pieces right where they had been, on the good old-fashioned closet doorknob…
Do you see that?
It’s the top of my dresser. Hasn’t been spotted in months.
P.S. I’ll post a few more pics of my ongoing bedroom refresh coming soon… Which I’m saying out loud mostly so that I will continue this project. (Because you should see the other half of my room right now.) Stay tuned.
P.P.S. I know. That’s alotta pink.
