Some serious help.
Some serious organizational help.
I couldn't find my earrings!
Well . . . I could. It just took me an awfully long time.
You see, I (like many women, I'm sure) kept all my earrings tossed together in a little jewelry box that sits on my dresser. That little box kept my earrings corralled pretty effectively, but heaven help me if I tried to find a matching pair! I'd have to dump out the whole box and untangle them all while simultaneously praying that I didn't drop one on the floor or lose one down the drain!
So I decided to follow the other creative minds on the web and turn an old picture frame into a jewelry holder!
I started with a frame I bought at Michael's for cheap a while back. I, of course, had to spray paint it my favorite color :o)
Then, I carefully stapled some chicken wire (my parents say that that's not chicken wire, but I don't know what else to call it) to the back of a frame.
Bam! Instant earring holder!
But why stop there? I have plenty of necklaces that need a home too. So I added some hooks at the bottom of the frame.
Now this little beauty hangs in my closet. She's not only pretty but is also a huge improvement! Now that I can find all my cute earrings, I'm definitely wearing them a lot more. If that doesn't say "Success", I don't know what does! :o)
