Jewelry Organization

So I have a bit of costume jewelry and needed a good way to display it. I had an old framed mirror in my garage that wasn't being used, so I removed the glass, added screen mesh that I picked up from Home Depot, and backed it with grasscloth wallpaper.

I used metal hooks for the necklaces and bracelets, and the earrings just hook into the mesh.

A bit of advice, there needs to be some space between the mesh and the backing. I hot glued the mesh to the inside of the frame, where the glass would rest against, and then attached the backing flat against the very back of the frame. This gave me about 1/4 inch of spacing. Just enough to hook the earrings in.

Super easy! I've got mine hanging on a wall in my bathroom.
Functional and cute!

That is very cute, maybe once I have older children who don't try to rip all my jewelry off then I too can acquire more.

Shannon, your blog is so fun! I've missed seeing all your fun projects... until now! I've been wanting to do something like this but just haven't. You've inspired me- I'm so ready to do it now! Thanks!
