The previous version was pink but this time I used turquoise for the accent color:

The base makes a great landing spot for all those small accessories: hair clips, earrings, lip balms, etc.

The clear beads on the ends of the hanging bars make a nice finishing touch.  I found these clear faceted beads at Michaels and the top clear knob is from Home Depot.

I covered the interior with tape and sprayed primer and semi gloss white.  Pull off the tape and then paint the interior turquoise.

For the name print out the desired size.  Line up print out at center and trace letters using heavy pressure with a ballpoint pen.  The pen leaves an indent in the wood.  Paint on and inside the indent.
