Bead Table Wednesday

Inspiration!!

This is just what I needed to get back into a creative mode. My beadwork has been hiding in a box for over a month. This week I unpacked my favorite pieces and carefully placed them on my beadboards. Now when I sit at my table to bead I am inspired by the colors, textures, different shapes and sizes of the beads I use to create with. What are those boards made out of? They are frames use to make Grandfather clocks. They didn't pass inspection at the factory and were discarded. I was lucky enough to know someone who worked there many years ago. Rosanne and I figured out a way to use them in our booth when we did shows. I miss those days!

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for stopping Halinka and the kind words. My bead room is also the guest bedroom when company comes to visit. It's a great way to keep things functional.

LeAnn it has been hard settling in. Everything changes once it goes into a box and come out again. I hope you are settle in.

Danielle, you could use any kind of frame. Cut foam board and cover it with a linen type cloth and your ready to pin your inspiration on display.

Love the display. This is a wonderful way to keep your beadwork out so company can enjoy it.

What a great idea. As soon as I move I can get my bead work out and put it on a board to get going again. The artistic way of display is nice to look at as well as inspiring, so I am ready to create another piece of art to hang in my new place. Thanks for the idea!
