I received some very pretty new pieces of jewelry for Christmas as I am sure most did. Frustrated that I cannot view my pieces in one place has been bothering for a while now.
After seeing this great idea shared by Paige at Simple Thoughts I figured it was time to make one. Best part of this was I had all the ingredients in the house!
I started with an older covered cork board:
But there were a lot of THESE:
Stripped and ready:
I had burlap on hand so I used that. There is a lot more stretch in burlap than you realize! Getting it straight was not easy:
Next up was push pins. I had clear on hand so I used those:
Then I just spent time organizing it the way I wanted: Some of my favorite pieces that were always buried in a drawer before:
I was not going to add earrings but these are worn only a few times a year so it was a good place to hang them in the burlap:
My final product:
And here is where I hung it in my bedroom:
Most of these pieces were hidden in the second drawer down in that chest. I would have to peek OVER the drawer just to see in it. This is a much better solution:
And the best part is – you hardly even notice it from the door! (The Mr. likes that!)
I think my first project of 2013 came out pretty well!!! I think my next project up should be to shorten those drapes!
