I not only have an earring fetish, but also an earring fetish in a 5 x6 inch box. The more earrings I add to this mess, the more tangled and damaged they are becoming... so, meet my solution:
I liked this one from Queen of DIY
or this one
in fact, their are thousands of tutorials on this project, so I just thought I would add to the chaos. :)
1) I found a framed corkboard that I loved from Tuesday Morning. You probably remember me mentioning it here in a previous post.
3) Then to find the "screen" to hang them from...
I thought this task would be easy, since many tutorials mentioned that you could just pick up chicken wire or hardware cloth at your local hardware store, but when I went checked at Home Depot and Ace Hardware you had to buy in bulk.... and that would cost anywhere from $10.00 to $40.00 bucks... ummm no thanks... I'm looking for free. So I remembered taking off the screens from the dreaded windows that you keep hearing about, and when to the "dump" (a.k.a. our backyard) to hunt them down. And I found them!
4) Spray painted my frame and screen turqoise.
5) Using a drill, I made a starter hole so I could then screw in the hooks.
I Ryan hung it in my closet! Right where I can decide on my earrings once my outfit is complete!
And remember this egg crate from Anthropologie? I will have to go get another one (only $14.00!) because it's perfect for holding my studs and rings!
*Coming soon: Closet organization
I can now tackle this, among any other house to-do's since I am finished with school for the summer! Yay!
