frame jewelry holder

i've seen a lot of these online, so i can't give credit to just one site.

i've been wanting a way to have some of my jewelry out on display; it's a neat way to have art in the bathroom / dressing area while showing me what jewelry i have so that i use different necklaces than just my one or two favorites-- without bringing out my big, nice jewelry box to dig through.

i took a frame that i bought at the thrift store and touched up the paint on it a little. it just needed a fresh black, even though it came black, to make it look nicer. then i bought some screen from lowe's, cut it larger than the opening of the frame, and stapled it-- using my regular desk stapler, because it's a pretty thin frame.



then use a utility knife to cut the scrap screen outside of the staples.



i wanted something a little different to hang it with, so i got some small black chain from lowe's, and wove some turquoise ribbon through it.



then i used some furniture tacks that i had lying around to attach the ribbon/chain to the frame.



i decided where i wanted my jewelry, and added the small S-hooks (from lowe's) right through the screen.



then i hung my jewelry on it, and...
taaa daaaa!!!



and it's cheap!
frame: thrift store, $3
screen: lowe's, $5 (used a fraction of it though, so lots leftover!)
chain: lowe's, $1.06 for two feet
ribbon: already had at home
tacks: already had at home
s-hooks: lowe's, $0.80 for 10 hooks
