However, while I am out enjoying some of Europe's most vibrant cities, I have left you in good hands. For those who are new to my blog, I have 4 sisters, and for blogging purposes, I refer to them as the Muses. The are tremendously talented, absolutely brilliant, fun and beautiful. They influence and inspire me in so many ways. Anyway, today I leave you with Terpischore, who is craftier than she would like you to believe. In fact, I am feeling rather jealous of this project, which I donated a scrap of fabric to... Here she is...
After a recent afternoon spent untangling the necklaces in my jewelry box yet again, I decided I needed to find a better way to keep my jewelry organized. I got the idea for this project from a post I saw on Design*Sponge a few months back. I am not a particularly crafty person however I thought this sounded easy enough and it was!
I found this old wooden picture frame at the Brooklyn Flea one afternoon while browsing for antiques and thought it would do the trick. With a little white spray paint, an old cork board, a bit of ribbon and some fabric, generously donated by Clio, I set about making my jewelry board.
The process was fairly easy; I started by measuring the cork board and using a straight razor to cut it to size. The unseasonably warm day gave me the opportunity to paint the frame. Having never used spray paint before I had a lot of fun spraying away! The frame took 2 coats to cover the forest green paint underneath. Once dry (24hrs. later), I attached the fabric to the cork with regular staples and the ribbon to the frame using a staple gun.
Thanks, Clio, for donating your scraps!
