I was flipping through Southern Living's recent special edition, "100 Makeover Ideas" (couldn't find a link) and came across a bulletin board covered in fabric to hang large pieces of jewelry. Theirs was framed (in what looked like crown molding that had been cut to fit). I decided I'd attempt to make it, 'cause Lord knows I have three jewelry boxes and I am about to die to find a way to separate big, bulky pieces from smaller, daintier ones.
Then, I remembered I had this window frame! Holla!
Here is the finished product:
What I used:
* roll of corkboard (make sure it's not the super thin kind)
* 3 pk. of foam boards (I put these behind the cork because the cork alone wasn't thick enough and it would've caused the thumbtacks to poke all the way through to the wall)
* fabric (I had an old linen-like shower curtain leftover that I'd started to cut up to use on something else)
* staple gun and staples (make sure the staples are big/long enough to go through the cork, foam, fabric, and into your frame, if you make yours that way)
* D-hooks and picture hanging wire // materials for preferred method of hanging your frame
* thumbtacks or some sort of pushpin (I just used clear thumbtacks because I didn't want too much going on with color, etc)
Basically, my "layers" were"
1 - frame
2 - fabric
3 - corkboard
4 - foam (just one sheet is thick enough - out of the 3 in the pack, I only needed two, side-by-side, and I had to cut one of them down so its edges weren't visible)
Hope this explains it. Loving mine so far.
One step closer to organization!
