Another Project - Dresser Set - Done

The little Etsy shop is proving to be a great incentive to get things finished - this time it is a dresser set of handmirror and comb.  I have had these sitting here for awhile, having purchased the set thinking I could take it apart and replace the back decoration with a piece of crazy quilting.  Well, it worked!  And I even managed to get it put back together again! LOL

Here's a bit of a closer look at the crazy quilt section on the back of the hand mirror. 

  And here is the front of it - that's not very interesting. All in all though, I have to say I love it when a plan comes together - and this one did.

Kerry I don't know how you did it, but this is beautiful!! It always amazes me when I see the creativity of cq'rs. Unbelievable

Lovely. Was it difficult to re-assemble the hand mirror?

Very pretty, Kerry. If I actually liked to look in a mirror it would sure be a nice thing to have. I think when the granddaughters get a little older it would be a nice gift for them. You've got me thinking! (that could be dangerous)- Cathy L

Yes Kerry very nice indeed you have given me ideas to look for this kind of thing in the second hand shops and recreate them as gifts, thanks for the inspiration. Linda

I didn't know you could take those things apart without damaging them. What a great idea you had and a wonderful job you did. Thanks for sharing. Connie

Thanks to all the your kind words! I did enjoy taking this apart and making it work. It is the second one I`ve tried. They seem to vary a little in the mechanics from one to another - some cooperate and some don`t quite as easily. Fun though!

What a clever idea you had. And it turned out so well.
