Ok, I got the idea to make a jewelry holder when I saw Kristi's on her blog. My mind went crazy thinking of ideas. I am definitely not as creative as Kristi but I quickly got an idea. I wanted to use peg board as the background. For a frame... Friday night after work I went searching thrift stores. In the corner of the store I saw this ugly thing. I believe it is the frame to an OLD tv. I had peg board on the side of my house... I went to go get it and to my surprise I could not find it anywhere. I really think someone stole my peg board. So lame. Anyways, my dad had some so I used his instead. He helped me cut it to the frame. Enough typing... here is the project in pictures... and I LOVE it. I can't stop looking at it and smiling in disbelief that I thought of this idea all by myself. (Typically I am one of those crafters that copy an example to the T. Not this, I have never even seen anything like it). One more thing, I named this project Old and Bold because the frame is the distressed look and the peg board is very bold colors and pattern.
The ugly thrift store t.v. frame.
Plain ol' peg board. (I swear someone stole my peg board from my yard. Who the heck would do that... So dumb)
I painted the peg board brown first
Earing holder. I think this metal thingy is normally something used with adjustable shelving.
My ring hook. I bought a pack of peg board hooks that are normally perfect sizes for particular types of tools. Works great for different types of jewelry. I can move any of the hooks with ease anywhere on the peg board.
The best part of all this is NOTHING IS PERMANENT! I mean nothing! I can flip it long ways just by removing the metal earing piece and replacing it with the longer piece that I already have cut for that purpose. Or if I want to repaint the frame or peg board just unscrew it with ease! So versatile. Now I can easily see all my jewelry (except for earings that aren't the hooky kind) which makes it easier in the morning to find something!! I also paid a whopping $11 for everything! The frame $3, the pack of 40 different hooks $6, the scrapbook paper for the background design $2, peg board was free, paint was what I already had around the house, and metal rod came with my house so free. It was fun to do too and can be done in a day.
