Omg I haven’t blogged in like forever !
I am not going to make excuses or anything other than this one teeny weeny thing . My life is a whirlwind.
Anyhoo , I am here now and I have a DIY post . Something I’ve been meaning to do for a looong time.
I’ve been wanting to make a proper necklace holder for myself for the longest time ! And I wanted to make it with something I had no use for. In the mean time, my necklaces have been moving from the bed room to the guest room , to a door handle from a clothes hanger and the one thing that frustrated me most was how hard it was untangle them when I wanted to get one out.
Having said that, below is a picture of a wedding present we received when we got married. Erm. Yeah.
Since it’s not going to do it’s job of brainwashing me into wanting to make a baby yet, I thought I could use the frame . And that’s exactly what I did.
So here’s what went down over the course of perhaps a month. Or so.
I separated the frame from the picture first.
I then painted the board at the back in White. Then because the frame broke in two while I was trying to separate it, I super glued it together. I also found a bunch of wine corks I had been keeping aside to make use of some day and glued them on the board which was now white.
I let it dry and harden overnight.
Then I popped the board back into the frame and secured it with the fasteners at the back. I then hung my jewelry, patted myself on the back and looked at it for an hour because you see , now, I have a necklace display . Thank heavens.
This is what the finished product looks like .
Oh and the mother baby picture?I am giving it away to someone who will make good use of it.
