I found this well used jewelry stand at my local Goodwill recently. I’ve been looking for something similar to this for one of our guest bedrooms. It was in pretty rough shape and the leopard print pattern is not my taste at all, but I was convinced I could give it a makeover that would match the coastal decor of the room.
The leopard print fabric was glued to the stand.Most of it pulled away easily using a pair of pliers, but some of it was a bit more stubborn. It had a cardboard backing to it that was a little difficult to remove.
Deconstructing the fabric and cardboard from the jewelry stand
I unscrewed the hooks and set them aside, then I used a flat head screwdriver to pry fabric and cardboard off. The part of the stand that has curved container spaces proved to be the most challenging. I removed the fabric, but was left with cardboard near the bottom that I couldn’t get off. I had to get a little creative for that space.
Once I had removed the fabric, I gave it one coat of ivory chalk paint for a base coat. I wasn’t too concerned about the splotches since it would be recovered with fabric.
After the ivory paint dried, the stand got two coats of Agave paint by Waverly.
I used spray adhesive to attach the felt panels that I had cut to size. The hooks were re-inserted and decorative ribbon was hot glued on as a border.
To cover the cardboard that I couldn’t remove, I cut strips of burlap ribbon and attached them with spray adhesive. They cover the cardboard well.
I cut a piece of cardboard to size and wrapped it with a piece of felt to make it thicker. The felt was covered with a piece of ivory cotton fabric. I used spray adhesive to attach the fabric. More of the decorative ribbon was wrapped around the panel and hot glued to the back of it. The piece of felt on the ring holder side is to give a smooth surface for attaching the foam sections.
The leopard print fabric pulled away from the foam pieces easily. Ivory felt was cut to fit each piece of foam. I hot glued the felt to the foam and then pressed the foam together before hot gluing it to the stand.
This makeover did take a little longer to finish than I thought it would, mostly because of the stubborn cardboard and trying to find a way to cover that.
I’m happy with how this piece turned out and it fits in well with the coastal bedroom Hopefully, guests will find it useful!
