Old Window Jewelry Holder

Today it got SO HOT 115 degrees hot. Ugh. I'm so over it. I didn't want to take the bambino out in it so we just stayed home and played :) He loves his jumper and today was no exception! I know people always tell me, but he really is the happiest baby. He smiles so much. Here's a taste.

Shane always laughs and thinks I'm obsessed with making things. The truth is I am haha :) I guess it's from being a mom and staying home with him. I mean don't get me wrong, I have always made things but now I think of new things daily. Today I made a jewelry holder with an old window. All you need is an old window, chicken wire and a few nails! That's it. 

If you're like me, you have TONS of jewelry stuffed in drawers and just scattered everywhere. This makes it so nice. Now I will be able to see all my earrings! Theres really only 2 steps.

Get the window ready how you want it. I chose to keep the old vintage feel and not repaint. I like the look :) I had to glue a piece back on but that was easy and you can't even tell.

Next all you do is nail the chicken wire in on the edge of the frame. 

Then VOILA! I just started putting my earrings on here but you will get the idea :)

I just love how the paint is weathered!

I LOVE making things. I am obsessed and proud of it ha!

I'm also going to make one with tree branches for necklaces soon. Excited about it. I'm ready to get all my jewelry organized once and for all. What are some of your favorite blogs with DIY projects? I'm always looking for new ways to get inspired...

  1. I LOVE this. I made a hair bow holder out of a frame and wire but I think I am going to redo it with chicken wire. I'll be sure to link it back to you for the idea. Are you on pinterest?
