little while ago year or so ago I bought 2 framed cork boards at a garage sale for $.50 each knowing I could probably use them for something creative in the house.
Last week I finally did! I was tired of having to dig through my tiny jewelry box drawers to find matching earings and my necklaces were always getting tangled up. They were hanging on these 2 nails in my closet…
but that wasn’t work so great because I had to take each off to get to the one behind it.
So, with the help of my awesome seam-stress mother-in-law, we staple-gunned some fabric we found from her leftover stash onto the corkboards.
And then I hung mine up in my closet
and my daughter’s in the kids’ bathroom behind the door
We used push pins instead of hooks because that’s what we had. One day I might exchange those pins for some pretty little hooks. I also might paint the wood frame a different color one day too…but this works just fine for now. We can see and access our jewelry in a fun and easy way! This was a simple project that made me happy to complete.
P.S. Most of my lovely jewelry was gifted to me by my awesome brothers and family and a lot of it comes from the very talented Jeannie–check out her Bead Stylin’ Store!
