Pinteresting::Jewelry Board

Remember this project that I considered doing back in January?

This weekend, I made a simpler, more functional version that didn’t involve lace or an expensive frame.

I began with JC’s old corkboard. After I freed it from a 10-year layer of photos and push pins, I gathered these supplies:

  • Leftover wall paint from the hallway
  • paintbrush
  • 1/2 yard of pretty fabric
  • Wood or Elmer’s glue
  • One 1/4-inch wooden rod
  • small package of hook screws
  • hammer
  • small nails

First I applied the paint, lavishly, since I knew the fabric would cover any mistakes. After measuring the face of the board within the frame, I cut the fabric to size and glued it down inside the edges of the frame.

The next phase was the fun part! I created racks for my hook earrings by inserting the hook screws as supports. Once the rods were threaded through the hooks, it looked like this:

I then hammered nails into the board for each necklace and bracelet, being careful that they didn’t poke through the back. Voila!

  1. I am so doing this idea!!! I have SO much jewelry (thanks to Charming Charlie's which I found out from you. Not blaming you.) and no where to put them. All the pinterest ideas seems so expensive.
