It's all about the details

So...I created my interpretation of a Spa for the Build A-long project. I thought I would share some of the things (props) I used to sell the theme.

 I used foam to create cotton balls,and toe separators. I painted a piece to sponge for a buffer and wood trimming for a emery board. The table I bought on e-bay some time last year. It has a working drawer. I used it temporarily until I make a salon nail station.

 The Mi World OPI nail stand, I painted some of the tops to get more variety of colors. This idea was mentioned by Call of the Small in her blog post.


 I made hot rocks by hole punching foam board, painting the discarded circles black, then flattened them. Lastly, painted them with clear nail polish to achieve that high glossy look.

 


I  "borrowed" these Spa flyers/price list from Google images. I also did the same for the business cards (I printed them on photo paper for gloss). I made the stands and card holder from scrap wood pieces. I am learning that details make the space.

  1. Oeh I like the display. It's so colourful and it catches your eye... well it's a display and that's whats it intended for lol ;0
    The idea of these build alongs is growing on me, it's a great way to try out new things and force yourself to build things (outside your own comfort zone) you normally wouldn't. I hope that made some sence? ;p

  2. That display is absolutely beautiful, great work :D! All you've done is fantastic: the hot rocks look quite realistic, just like all the accessories on the counter of the Spa!
    Thanks for sharing how you did this.
    Hugs, Ilona

  3. This is beautiful! I have never seen such nicely done spa accessories. I have no idea how you managed to make such little cotton balls! And the stones look very realistic. I am so looking forward to seeing the whole thing!
