I don’t wear a lot of jewelry–and by “a lot,” I really mean “anything other than a watch and maybe earrings.” But years and years of perusing J. Crew and style blogs like this one have convinced me I should probably wear some of the necklaces I managed to collect over the years of not wearing jewelry. The problem? They lived in a drawer and I forgot about them. So I made a jewelry board to hang them up in the bedroom.
I just cut a piece of leftover homasote from the office boards project last year to about picture size and spray-adhesived some leftover rice paper over it:
Then I added little hooks:
And hung it up.
I think it’s working at least a little–I wore a necklace AND a bracelet AND a watch to the symphony this past weekend. At the very least, it’s more things on the wall and more colors.
I’m so impressed by this. I’ve seen several on apartment therapy and have been musing on one for my own trinkets. Bravo. Do the little brass hooks stay in firmly, even after replacing the heavier baubles a few times? Extra points for wearing your sparkley things!
