an embarassingly simple DIY jewelry board & my connection with beth moore
good morning everybody
i’ll be honest, the last couple days i’ve been glued to my computer watching as much of the Passion 2012 live stream
for those of you who’ve asked, i think each session expires after 24 hours…however, you can purchase the all access pass & have all of it available to you as they release them over the next few weeks/months. i highly recommend that!
i’ve bascially blown up my facebook & twitter accounts about #passion2012
i promise to talk about something else but i have a quick story to tell you.
so, tuesday morning i ran over to the mall for a quickie exchange. since passion doesn’t tell you the schedule of speakers, i was completely unaware that beth moore was speaking live at around 11:00.
i was in anthropologie at 11:00 looking at everything, including jewelry.
i picked up a gorgeous pair of chandelier earrings, however since i have an empty post-christmas bank account, i laid them back down.
so, i come home later & watch beth moore on the live stream. low & behold, THE beth moore had on the earrings ya’ll!!
couldn’t find the exact color that “we” have/covet on line, but this
is the pair in blue.
i’d bet the farm these were what she was wearing.
i shoulda screenshot the image & zoomed in
like any good stalker would have….sigh.
surely ya’ll would be as excited about matching jewelry style with a
veritable star right?
it’s like we’re twins 🙂
so at the exact time i was picking up a gorgeous pair of anthro earrings, beth was speaking at passion…down the street.
isn’t that amazing? sorta like a cosmic sign that we’re kindred spirits or something….or that we just have the same taste in earrings. i prefer to see it as a kindred spirit sign!
i have a pretty good size inventory of jewelry
as that’s my favorite accessory.
i needed to do something to make storage a little more efficient.
in fact, this little DIY project is so darn simple
that i’m embarrased to share
& it surely doesn’t require step by step images
but the basics are as follows:
i used a 24×36 cork/message board
covered it with linen but burlap would be great too
headed over to lowe’s & picked up upholstery tacks
measured & nailed them around the border.
while i was at lowe’s i also grabbed some nickel plated style push pins
about 75 of those.
& went to town hanging my favorite necklaces.
i wanted this to be both functional & artsy pretty.
i keep my larger chunky necklaces on another display
but for the majority of them, i hung them on my board.
savannah is wanting to make a larger board
using vintage door knobs, knockers & drawer pulls
so i’m on the look out for those.
but for now, here you go…
my entire cost was less than $30
or you could swing by ballards
& pick up one
for upwards of $219
okie doke, back to the live stream…today’s the final day!
