I like to think that I am pretty crafty–I wish I could find a way to share all of my great ideas with you and eventually maybe I will. Sometimes my DIY projects turn out and look pretty good; occasionally they most definitely not. This is one of those times that I was thrilled with the result. I was getting quite annoyed that I could never find the necklace or bracelet that I wanted to wear. So I found a cheap way to fix that!
It is hung up in our closet and it looks very nice! LOOK! I can see all of my jewelry and easily grab it on my way out the door! James says it looks nice, but I really think he is just happy that I won’t have my jewelry sprawled out on the bathroom counter anymore.
Entering the DIY Zone!!
I bought a plain bulletin board from Target. I had fabric at the house that was supposed to be for my kitchen curtain, but turns out I am not a curtain maker. (Yes, I did make one curtain and it did not look bad, but it took me an entire weekend.) So I took that curtain fabric and stretched it around the bulletin board and stapled it to the back. I then attached a hook to hang it up.
I used clear pushpins to hang all of my necklaces, bracelets, and earrings on. I spaced them out randomly and unorganized; I think it looks much better that way. I was going to use the pearl pushpins, however I was told that the two metals would cause each other to rust. Because lets face it, Target does not supply super expensive jewelry. So in the end I bought something that would look nice, blend in with the background, and not let the metal of the pushpin touch with the metal of my jewelry.
