Olive Rue

She had me at the Pears in her banner.  You just can’t go wrong decorating anything with pears….even a blog banner.

 Olive Rue

………cute name too……..she is another master at reinventing something out of a cast away. She has a bit of an obsession for frames and bewitching them to become something better.  I am loving what she did with this one.  I would have never seen it…

…but she did…..That doesn’t even look like the same frame. 

  feathers066pics072How about his frame. 

   

 

 

 

 

She didn’t even have to paint it!

  And yet, another frame idea………Why not attach some tulle to the back and use it for hanging your jewelry?  She also shows one with burlap……….love me some burlap.

Very similar to the burlap jewelry hanger, but used for a bulletin board.

Here’s another wonderful transformation…….Once again, not my style, but painted……oh my my my………hello!  And notice the burlap.  She sells this stuff.  How could she possibly get rid of it?

 

Another cute transformation…….From drab to fab!

But what I love the most about this black cabinet………is the knobs. 

cab7     Who hasn’t seen the lonely little table at a garage sale….one that has seen better days, one that doesn’t posses any cute lines…….She is the master at seeing beyond the ugliness………don’t miss the cute little knob she added for flair.
