Today's remakes are actually two accessories that I made for Marie Osmond's TV show that airs today!! We did a segment using thrifted and "from your closet but not using anymore" pieces to give some new life to!
Tune in at 12 noon/11C on the Hallmark Channel to check it out! Two of my remakes are below...
Project #1 - WRISTLET
It's just a basic, brown, leather wristlet I scored at Goodwill for less than two bucks. It's fine, but there's SO much more we can do!
Project #2 - BELT
This belt is on its last legs...the elastic is still in good condish, but the leathery bows are falling apart!!
With the before shots above, check out the steps to make these brand, spankin' new!!
For the wristlet, I went to my fail-safe Scotch Blue painters tape...
...and figured out the design I wanted to make, because the open areas are going to be painted! (This is actually awesome because you can really make any kind of cool designs you'd like. I'm going for more of a color blocking effect, but evenly placed stripes/stars/triangles would look fantastic!
I grabbed some Martha Stewart Paint and got cracking.
I started off choosing a matte aqua and some glitter options...
...however after drying and peeling off the paint...
...I painted over the navy glitter with a different shade. I also added a little somethin' somethin' to the clutch...but you'll see that on the show!
For the belt, I started off by cutting off these attached bows that were pretty much disintegrating. See how worn out it is??
With my bows cut off, I'm now left with a basic black, elastic belt...
...which I'm going to add some organza ribbon to, that I twisted into little rosettes.
Tune into Marie's show today to get a sneak peek of how both of these turned out! The show clip and final after pictures will be posted tomorrow if you're unable to catch it though. Can't wait to hear what you think!
Also, for Young & the Restless and Amazing Race fans, Daniel Goddard (Cane) and the Chippendale's teammates (Jaymes & James) are also on the show, if you're looking for a bit testosterone on top of my DIYs :)
