Refurbished Thrift Store Frame = Jewelry Holder

Remember this lovely find from last weeks thrift store trip? Well I've been wanting to make a Jewelry Holder for a while now and knew that this would be perfect! Before this my earrings and rings were in the drawer of my vanity and my necklaces were hanging on the door knob of my closet. Not the greatest place because of how accessible they are to my little fashionista 2 year old. :)

I started by taking the whole thing apart, throwing the lovely "starry night cloth sewing thingy" in the trash and choosing a paint color. I decided to go with the color Indian Turquoise because its very lovely. :) It took several coats of paint but covered the gold nicely.

(Everyting I used minus White Spray Paint and Duct Tape.)

I used hot glue to stick the fabric to the styrofoam like so...

And Waalaa, here is the front after I glued the fabric to the styrofoam.

My Husband cut down my wire netting to just the right size to fit the frame for me with wire cutters. Then, I sprayed both sides of the wire netting with wite spray paint to blend into the fabric a little better.

I then stacked all the pieces just so into the frame, slapped a few strips of duct tape on the back to keep it all together, nailed 2 small nails into the sides at the top of the frame for hooks and...

FINISHED! :) And I love it.
