I wore this yesterday for casual Friday and surprisingly it seemed like a big hit, judging from the many comments I got. We’re having lots of beautiful spring days around here! I went to a bbq cook-off briefly today and then spent the rest of the day doing laundry/chores and a really long walk outside. Hope everyone is having a great weekend too! (Also, my necklace was designed for Michelle Obama. Say whattt. It comes with a ribbon so you can wear it long or tie it up short. Thanks, Mom!)

A very special guest post from our good friend, Megan! Megan is always, always, always stylish and cute, even though her general response to compliments is “This old thing?” or “Oh, girl I just threw these pants on!” Megan is student teaching this semester (so will soon be the world’s sweetest elementary school teacher!). Running around after 8 year olds all day requires you to look both professional yet comfortable. Megan pulls it off perfectly (of course!).
About a month ago, I showed you a handmade wall display to hang earrings on that I found at a craft show. Mom and I finally got around to making her one plus a frame for her necklaces.
First, we found a couple of sad, out dated prints at Goodwill with decent frames:
For the first makeover, we dismantled the frame and rubbed it down with Old English to make it shine.
Next, we cut Galvanized Hardware Cloth from the Garden Area of Lowe’s to fit inside the frame. (Note: below is my father’s hand. I’d like to think my hands are more feminine looking ha.)
Then, we attached the wire to the frame using a staple gun. If you don’t have one, small nails/tacks bent over will work too.
Frame Number One Completed:
Now, for the next makeover, which I somehow failed to photo document. We decided to use a swatch of fabric we found at Goodwill because it matched the wall color so well. We removed the glass from the frame and covered the inner board with the fabric and secured with staples in the back. We added some brass upholstery tacks to hang necklaces and ta da! Two finished hanging jewelry organizers!
Frame Number Two Completed:
