My daughter is like most women…a lot of jewelry and no place to put it! Necklaces overflowing. Earrings everywhere. Glass jars full of bracelets. (Never mind the fact that she probably has 2 or 3 jewelry boxes stuffed somewhere.) After some serious thought, this is what I came up with…
Let me preface by telling you that last year, she had a Paris themed birthday party. It was awesome! We even had an Eiffel Tower! Of course, it was only about 3 ft tall.
You guessed it. That’s where the necklaces have been hanging for the last year.
This is the “cleaned up” version. There were twice as many necklaces on there before! It worked, but it was very hard for her to see what necklaces she had and they were constantly getting tangled together.
So…we had the “tower of necklaces” and we had this…
The frames with the initials worked, but she never liked the flower wall decals and I was just never satisfied with the way it looked.
The initials are from PBteen. They are iron with a black finish and the wire twists so that you can use them to hold photos, cards, etc to display. I bought the frames based on the measurements of the initials. Each frame is different in size and design. I removed the glass and backing and then spray painted them a glossy black.
The other day, it dawned on me that the wire initials could hold her necklaces…but they were to high on the wall for her to be able to reach them. Definitely had to move them…
So if the initials will hold necklaces, why not the frames? Some frames from PBteen gave me the inspiration…the problem was I had thrown away the backs to the frame and to be honest…did not want to have to make a “pinboard” to fit each frame. Simple solution…hooks!
I measured and marked equal distances for small cup hooks. They were 2 inches apart.
Then I screwed in a small cup hook at each mark. Not the easiest task! Those hooks are small!
And viola! Instant jewelry holder!
I mixed it up a little, so now she has both the initials and two of the frames holding her necklaces.
They are actually neat and in order! I like the way they are “framing” the tv.
Plus, you can actually tell that the Eiffel Tower is indeed the Eiffel Tower!
Now…what are we going to put above the bed??? Any ideas?
