Picture This........Jewlery Holder

I don't know about you but it seems when I want to wear a certain pair of earrings it has been.....hmmmmm where did I put those?  Or I've also had the "wow, I don't remember that pair!" experience.  I'm not clutter free and I don't always remember where I put things :)  so in order to minimize frustration I wanted to make something for my hanging earrings....(you know the kind without posts)  I know your so amazed by my technical writing skills :) 

I've seen some projects but I had something else in mind so this is what I came up with............

This is what I did:

*What you will need is a frame ( I spray painted and distressed mine and really like the way it looks in my bedroom)
*piece of screen.......I went to my local True Value ~ they had some screening leftovers in the back they gave me for FREE!  They are really nice people!  Sometimes it pays to go local instead of big box stores!
*Material for back - if you want your walls to show through then skip this step.  My walls are white and I wanted something to stand out and look like a piece of art.  I found a remenant of material at JoAnn's ~ very inexpensive!
*Staple gun
I painted the frame ~ attached screen with the staple gun ~ pulled material tight and stapled to the back and had a new, functional piece of art for the bedroom :)

Here it is on the wall with a hook I found at GW....It was a garden hook I use to hang some necklaces on it :)

Let me know what you think!  I love your comments!
