Jewelry Holder

I have been wanting to do this project for a while now. I finally got around to it today.

Here's a simple how to-

What you'll need:

-a large frame or window
(the larger the more jewelry it will hold)

-a staple gun

-chicken wire

-small sized S hooks
-wire cutters

Step 1 - lay your chicken wire over your frame

Step 2- staple down the chicken wire (you may have to add more staples later) and then cut the wire with wire cutters

Step 3 - admire your work and add more staples if needed

Step 4 - Hang in desired location; add S hooks for places you want to hang necklaces

Step 5- hang earrings and necklaces and ENJOY!

Easy and super fun! If any of you want to make one for yourself let me know because I have a TON of chicken wire! :)

I have a problem...

Ok, so I have a problem. I get tired of things so quickly! It drives Dave crazy.

I am sick and tired of many things in our house. Of course this may be because I'm really tired of our house in general and would like a new one...ahem...

Since the new house won't be happening for awhile I have to do what I can for now.

Step 1. Change the bedding on our bed...AGAIN!

I absolutely love it! And the best part of it came from Marshall's! I had seen many similar patterns in Crate and Barrel, etc. This was 1/2 the price! I was getting so sick of my brown comforter. I wanted something bright and happy.

This dark brown throw pillow is being replaced with this
Hopefully to arrive in 5-7 business days!

Now here is where you come in to play.

What can I do about this
(there is another one on the other side)



Change people! I need change!

Ideas please!

Next on the project list:
-repaint master bathroom
(I'll let you know when I get to that)
