I would like to acknowledge that I understand that a significant portion of this blog so far has been dedicated to pairing and organizing my accessories. Don’t worry, I will eventually move on to other rooms in the house.
I had tried all kinds of methods to keep my necklaces in one place, and more importantly, untangled. Most recently, I had them each in a separate ziplock bag in a basket on my dresser, thinking that keeping them each apart would be the key to my problems and would make perusing my jewelry similar to looking through the sale accessories section at Banana Republic. This very quickly turned out to not be the case.
Working my way through my collection of discounted 16×20 frames, I painted this one with Rust Oleum spray paint in Dark Hunter Green. I purchased a 4’x4′ piece of peg board and some basic hooks from Home Depot, and cut it down to fit the frame. I spray painted the peg board with Rust Oleum paint in Almond.
Now everything is front and center, rather than being buried in a basket. As my loving mother so graciously pointed out, you could also cover the peg board with some burlap or fabric if you prefer “a more finished look,” as she referred to it. Maybe that step is still to come for me, but for now I am happy to have another craft checked off my list.
