{super sized} Jewelry Organizer

Wayyyy back in June I bought this gorgeous {31x42} frame at a local flea\antique show, Old Red Lumberyard in McKinney, TX.


That was back in the good old days when my flowers and grass were actually alive! I would complain about not having any rain, like EVER, but the temp finally fell below 100 and I don't want to piss Mother Nature off :)

Anyways! So I really wanted this to become a jewelry display because currently my jewelry is stuffed in an old silverware box away from little fingers.


Messy! I blame Miss M :) So at first I tried to use chicken wire stuff.  It was not good. So after a little Pintrest browsing I decided to make it in to a shadow type box.  I don't own a table saw {but I'm pretty sure I've dropped enough hints about getting one from Santa!}, but on Memorial Day my little brother just happened to be at my parents house and I just happened to have the frame in my trunk so with a little pleading he was kind enough to build one for me.


I did the hard part, you know gluing and painting :)  I tried some new paint from Lowe's, Pantone, it's a paint and primer in one and very thick, but covers really well!  I will definitely be trying this on some furniture!


I Gorilla glued the frame to the box and added some hooks and Ta Da!


The rod at the bottom is to hold bracelets and headbands, I love how it has a shelf where I can drop my rings.


I just remembered that I have an entire jewelry box I put in the top of my closet because Madison was always getting in to it! Argh, see I don't even know what I have anymore, now it can be all pretty and displayed!


Finally I can buy more bling without feeling guilty that I don't wear the ones I have :)

Happy Tuesday!
