Last week, I was walking through a thrift store and this old wooden frame caught my eye. I liked it's character, style and the detail in the wood. It was only $2 so, I snatched it up and decided that I'd repaint it and turn it into something that I've been wanting to make.....a jewelry board!
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.
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.
After the new paint on the frame was really dry, I put the backing of the frame back on and then added the painted push pins.
I hung it up in the bathroom, hung my big necklaces on it and then did the happy dance that my 3 year old nephew does.
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.
