This project was fast, easy and I’m so happy to have a better way to organize my big necklaces and bracelets. I have a nice jewelry box that my husband gave me but, I love chunky jewelry and those big pieces fill up a jewelry box way too quickly.
I started making the jewelry board by first using a hot glue gun to attach some cork board to the cardboard back of the frame.
Next, I painted the outside of the frame with two coats of paint, letting the paint dry in between coats. I decided to go with plain old white push pins for hanging the jewelry but, to dress them up a bit, I painted the tops of each pin.
The cork board (that was glued onto the cardboard) got covered with a yellow and white checkered fabric. Pulling the fabric tight and stapling it to the back worked really well.
The lower part of the board I intentionally left a little more empty. I’m hoping that will be a special place where my husband and I can leave each other little notes etc.
Seriously, I really do love this. The color is energizing, my necklaces are organized and they’re up and away from the little hands that live in our house.
