Repurposed into a Necklace Holder


Hi everyone!

Well, I needed more space to hang necklaces so, I decided to make up a wall hanging necklace holder. Like everything else, if I can’t see it, I don’t use it. So, when I have necklaces tucked away in a jewelry box, I have a tendency to forget about them.

I knew I would have to do a couple of coats but, after seeing the light pink with the wood grain popping through, I decided I liked that look and didn’t spray any more coats.

I nailed the little hanging thingy back onto the back part of the frame and then just hung it up.

    Diann, this is a very pretty (useful) project. Did you put the glass back in? It seems like there is a reflection. Just wondering.

  7. What a great idea, I know what you mean about having them where you can see them. I have a rail inside my wardrobe for mine to hang on, practical but not as pretty as your idea. I must look out for an old frame now!

  9. This is a great project. It's a very nice way to keep necklaces, especially the longer ones, out where you can easily see them and grab them to wear!
