Having grown up in a home brimming with sewing notions and paintbrushes, Amy has a deep love for all things creative. On any given day, you’ll find her knee-deep in her latest creative endeavor, with projects ranging from sewing and crafts to home decor and kid-friendly ideas. Amy believes that everyone, regardless of skill level or experience, possesses the ability to create something beautiful, and Positively Splendid was born of her passion for helping others harness their innate creative potential.
Today’s project was born out of necessity. I have a piece of furniture that is fine in its own right, but that needed some tweaking to make it suitable for its current prominent location in our front entry. For a bit of enlightenment as to the situation surrounding this piece, refer to the letter below.
Oh. See those baskets on the right? That actually used to be another door just like the others until an unfortunate accident caused one to be shattered (five years ago), and I never got around to getting it fixed. I think the baskets do just fine, thank you! Although I would love to get around to making liners for them one of these days.
It must be something from my New Mexico upbringing, but I adore the look and texture of hammered metal. In figuring a way to upgrade the doors of the piece easily, I started looking into purchasing hammered copper ceiling tiles that I could trim down to fit in the opening of each door. Two problems there: (1) The panels were difficult to find locally and (2) It was nearly impossible to find a place to order them online that didn’t force me to buy in bulk.
