Pretty & Functional Jewelry Display
Pinterest really is a source for unbelieveable inspiration (and it's free)! I think all of my summer projects came from Pinterest! E broke the case that used to hold all my necklaces, so I needed a new way to store them. I had seen this jewelry display on Pinterest and knew I could make one too. I found a basic frame on sale at Michael's (I think, could have been JoAnn's) and bought a roll of chicken wire at Home Depot.
I cut the chicken wire to fit the frame and the hot glued it to the back. Gluing chicken wire is not super easy since it doesn't like to lay flat. I had to hold each wire in place until the glue dried. Not hard, but time consuming.
I then spray painted the frame with Rustoleum's Heirloom White and distressed it with some sand paper to give it a worn look. I added five small nails across the top of the frame to hold my necklaces.
Not too shabby huh?
I hung it then added my earrings and necklaces. Functional storage that also acts as wall art!
