DIY: Vintage Broach Necklace

We are always trying new ways to incorporate our vintage collection into our daily style. Try combining a few vintage broaches with a necklace for a unique look.

Step 1: Select a necklace. I chose a double strand of Austrian crystal beads so that I could have more area to pin on the broaches.

Step 2: Gather a few vintage broaches and pin them on using the fastener on the back.

DIY: Thrifted Chalkboard Globe

Another Pinterest Project!

Found this newer Globe at a thrift store for $2.99 and decided to use Chalkboard paint as seen on Pinterest. Here is how we did it.

1. Take the globe apart. This was really easy.
2. Hang the globe using string and a wire hanger.
3. Spray paint the base shiny gold.
4. Spray paint the globe using the Chalkboard spray paint. Wait 24 hours
5. Using the side of a piece of chalk rub the entire surface of the globe.
6. Erase and start writing!

DIY: Thrifted Vintage Wood and Metal Boxes

Found this Vintage Black Metal Toolbox and Vintage Wood Box with dividers on a recent thrift run. Wasn’t sure how exactly I was going to use until today.

Metal box holds my paints and the wood box now stores my artist pads and sketchbooks.
