My weekend project…

08 Jul

Ok, so it didn’t take me the whole weekend to do this…actually, it took about an hour. A fabulous, fun and informative hour. I found jewelery I forgot I even had! And that is the whole point of this…wear what I already own.

Although this will make it harder for me to convince my husband I need another turquoise necklace or new earrings….hmmm…

All I used was a $30 picture frame from Ikea, $8 piece of burlap fabric and hammer and nails that already were taking up space in our junk drawer(s)! Oh, and one hour of my time….

I just took out the frame’s glass front, covered the back board with the burlap and put the board back into the frame. Hung it on the wall and added the nails for all my lovely necklaces and such….easy!!


It’s a piece of (cheap) art and I will never have to dig for a necklace or bracelet again!!

      You’re welcome and hope you have fun making one! I’m still not sure if it was more fun making it or finding all my “lost” jewelery!

      It’s a great project because it was so quick (and painless!). I’m too random for long term projects, this one was right up my alley!

    Great idea…I’m making mine with a sidebar for rings….my hands are way to chapped to wear them but so my organizer can. Thanks for dropping by today.

    I’ve had a cork board sitting around forever and this would be the perfect use for it! Thank you!

    I have so many frames available for projects, I just can’t decide what to do with them all. I think one (or more!) will become a jewelry display now. It is fabulous! Love it!
