Picture frame turned earrings display.

Whoo hoo! Check out the end result:

Perfectly complements the new necklace hanger I made last week! From far away, the earrings almost look as if they're floating!

Nope; they're just hanging on some hemp jewelry twine.

All I needed were some of these eye hooks...

the aforementioned hemp...and a few tools. The frame I got at Goodwill last week for a whopping $4.00, and it was already this color!!

First I measured where I wanted my holes on the back of the frame and marked the spots with a pencil. OK, these eye hooks were SO tiny, I could barely keep them in my fingers, so I needed to use a nail to hammer my holes rather than just try to screw the hooks in from scratch. This helped a lot. I screwed them into their holes (heh heh) as much as I could, then used my trusty pliers to wind them all the way in. Then I just tied the hemp to each end and voila!

Tip: I left the long ends on the hemp and simply taped them down to the frame to hide them (just in case I need to re-tie the knots down the road).

Can you see the price tag over there? This frame was originally $19.99 at HobLob. Score one for the team!

Wow, this one tiny corner of our bedroom is starting to have a little life of its own, huh? It must be time to tackle the bedroom hand-me-down furniture. Wonder if I can make that happen before I go back to work in 2 weeks...ugh. I really want an electric sander before I tackle that!

I guess I probably need to paint the jewelry table thing, too, huh? Are we in Heirloom White overload yet? Be honest, I can take it.

I'll leave you with this picture of Jessie, who is spoiled rotten, and has taken to sleeping on our ottoman.

What a good idea - and seriously some jewelry is just so pretty, it ought to be on display! Your chalkboard projects look great!


Very, very nice. I think I'll have to try something like it for my daughter.

I love the white color scheme too--it's really relaxing.

Great idea!
I don't wear many earrings anymore, but I sure could use one of those necklace holders.
(hmmm...I have some glass knobs around here somewhere...)

This is a great idea. Displaying jewelry as art... would probably make finding my earrings easier when I'm half asleep in the mornings, as well. Thanks for dropping by and letting me know I'm not alone in my freakish word nerdery! And trabajamos is FABULOUS! (We are working...lol)
