Jewelry Holder

I sold Premier Jewelry for a year and I LOVE jewelry so I have a huge amount of jewelry. Some of it goes in my big jewelry box the hubby got me for christmas a couple years ago, but some of my necklaces are too long and bracelets too big to fit, so I need to be able to hang them up.

So I bought this *gorgeous* picture at His House for $3 (I should've fought with them to get the price down but I was feeling sweet that day)

Then I hired a sexy handyman to drill holes for me - he offered to show me how but I love NEEDING him

(the hooks are just a box of 50 ugly hooks for $2 at Lowes - I just couldn't make myself buy pretty knobs for $1 each)

Then I went out in the jungle and painted the frame "hat box brown" the same color as my bedroom (since this project was going in my closet)

I, then decided that I hated it that color - it looked kinda cheap and dirty and so I painted it black

I used some fabric that was leftover from my Ruffled Butt Onesie and wrapped the picture

Also using the other pattern of fabric from the onesie I wrapped these "fishing poles" (that's what my mom used them for, I'm not sure what they're really called)

Then I took that baby upstairs and hung it in my closet - you have no idea how much I LOVE this thing

How did I not know your bedroom is "hat box brown"? That is the same color as my living room. :) Very cute project.
