I have never met a necklace that I didn’t like so as a result I have quickly outgrown the space allotted for necklaces in my jewelry armoire. I didn’t even know what I had because it was such a jumbled mess.
Seeing all the cute jewelry holders out there in the Blogosphere inspired me to make one using materials I already had. I started with a lighted wall display cabinet that my hubby made for me years ago. I don’t have a picture of it when it was used for its original purpose, but I did take a photo of it before I started the transformation. Here it is leaning against a small wall in my kitchen. As you can see, it didn’t have a back.
I removed the glass door and glass shelves from the cabinet and the painting began. I used Cottage White by Behr which I had on hand from another painting project.
A couple of coats of paint later, I ended up with this. My hubby made a back for the cabinet out of some left over plywood and I bought some burlap and cup hooks to hang the necklaces on. I got a good deal on the burlap at Hobby Lobby because it was the end of the bolt so they sold it to me at clearance price and I ended up getting almost 2 yards of burlap at a price lower than the cost of one yard. This was my first project using burlap and since I now have some extra, I am sure it won’t be my last.
So, for a grand total of approximately $4.00, I ended up with this lovely and useful necklace holder.
