These are old premade displays in white leatherette and cherry stained wood.
The leatherette was ripped and spotted in several places, and the wood was scuffed and scratched.
They were being thrown out anyways so I decided to experiment.
I left them fully assembled and used an emery stick (it is a jewelry shop) and roughed up the varnish on the wooden parts, took them out back and spray painted everything green.
I bought bagged moss from the local craft store and used white glue to place mossy patches at random.
The showcases are draped with hanging bunches of green amaranthus.
The whole effect was very swamplike and the jewelry really popped.
Who knew you could spraypaint old leatherette jewelry displays?

Great recycling project!
Your “new” displays turned out so well – they’re different and eyecatching, and the moss is a great touch.
And actually, I think your green spray paint makes a cooler display than the standard white leatherette!
Thank you for sharing your made-over jewelry displays, Alicia!
I have to say, this is one of the best ideas I’ve ever seen. Very artistic way to display your jewelry!!

This is great! After looking at your website, I can see your jewelry looking even more amazing with this display!
What a change
They look really cool, and such a clever idea. I, too, changed the look of cheap plastic, grey flocked tray inserts by spray painting them my logo colors and putting them in nice wooden boxes. Generic no more!!
What an Eye-Catcher!
Fab idea…I can just see people getting whiplash as they pass by that display. It definitely begs for a second look. Ingenious!
Have you tried …
Have you tried the hammered-metal-finish spray paints? I LOVE those paints. I had to stop using them eventually because everything matched too much.
I love the moss. I’m going to have to try that!
