I knew I'd outgrown my current system and I thought about having my hubby cut me a piece of peg board the size of a large frame so that I could hang my jewelry from the peg holes. But that would number one require money, and number two require me to wait on his timing. (And somehow I knew he wouldn't see the urgency of the situation.)
So I turned to pinterest (but you knew that, right) and I found the idea of using cup hooks on a painted wood plank. Cute, but not large enough. Think same idea only bigger.
Then I remembered this frame turned chalk board that I used on my hot cocoa station at Christmas.
I could have painted the frame and board a bright color but instead opted to use this pretty Target calendar for inspiration and loosely drew a few flowers to mimic the look of the calendar.
I painted them with some craft paint I had on hand in colors that go with my decor, adding a little bit of pen work for detail.
I then screwed in some cup hooks from my tool box (three inches apart, staggering the rows) and added a length of picture framing wire across the back attached with a staple gun so that I could hang it on the wall with a couple of nails.
Now my favorite baubles and bangles hang just two to a hook so that grabbing the necklace I want is quick and easy. I love how pretty it turned out and it's so functional plus it was free. You can't beat that.
