Decorative Sheet Metal Jewelry Holder
This project is genius!!! It makes it so easy to see what jewelry you have. I have a tendency to wear the same jewelry all the time because I forget what I have!
A few weeks ago I posted that while I was at Home Depot I saw this great stuff!
Thankfully my friend Merri from 2 Parents, 5 kids, 365 days told me about a great idea she saw, originally from Better Homes and Gardens. It is simply brilliant!!
Home depot now carries these amazing decorative metal sheets. So cool! I found my sheet (which was 3' x 2') for $24 dollars. I actually made 3 of them - you can buy smaller sheets for less.
My hubby cut my sheet using a circular saw. I think it's about time for me to invest in some tin snips since I've needed them quite a few times!
My frame actually had tabs around the edges to hold the metal in place, but I did go back over it with a little bit of hot glue for extra support.
Next I added a tooth hanger and it was done!
I used S hooks to hang the necklaces.
This hangs on the wall in my bathroom right outside my closet. As you can see, I don't have a ton of jewelry, so this works perfectly for me!
