For months now my necklaces have been hanging on two little plastic hooks on the back of my closet door. Every time I open and close the door they bang around and drive me crazy! Finally, I got around to making this fabric covered frame to hang them on.
It was so easy to make. I just took an old frame I had laying around, took out the glass and backing. I sanded the frame and painted it white. It was a dark brown stain before so when I painted it, so I just did one quick coat so that some of the brown showed through. An easy way to make it look distressed.
I barely had enough of this fabric left for this project. It was a euro sham that I bought at Crate and Barrel years ago. I really wanted two of them for my bed, but they only had one. So I bought it and covered a smaller pillow, a small bench and now the frame.
At Michaels I found a piece of corkboard that was the exact size of the frame (score!). I actually hot glued the fabric to the cork. Usually I would have stapled it to the back, but my fabric barely stretched over the edges of the cork so I had to go with glue this time.
I used some decorative tacks I had from a previous project to hang the necklaces on. I love how it turned out. And I'm so glad not to have my necklaces hanging on the back of my closet door anymore!
