DIY: jewelry hanger

Like a lot of girls (and maybe some guys?) I have a serious soft spot for shiny/pretty things, sooooome people might even say that I have an excess of them. All of the jewelry that I use most often was stored willy-nilly in a bowl on the bathroom counter, so I spent a good amount of time every morning untangeling and sorting thru it all. In an effort to organize all of these gems I came up with this handy little DIY.

so here are all of my goods, organized and looking pretty on my kitchen table (to the great excitement of Simon, my cat! he tried to knock it all off)

Supplies: picture frame, which I found at a thrift store. The window screening, hooks, piping were bought at the hardware store for less than $10. The acrylic paint was from my studio, but could be easily found at any craft store.

The first thing I did was paint the frame...

Once the paint had dried I nailed the screening to the frame (I would of used a staple gun... if I had one, but I just improvised and used some tacs that I found in my husbands tool box)

then I simply screwed in several hooks along the top of the frame and used two more fanciful hooks on the bottom to hold some thin metal piping.

and, VOILA! A stylish and tidy jewelry stand/hanger!
