A DIY Project

So I have been on Pinterest lately and have found all kinds of great projects to do (plus meals, things for the kiddos, etc) Well when I was in NH we decided to do a craft day...I ended up being the only one to do a project, but we still had fun visiting. :) Anyway, I have been wanting to get a necklace holder so I could keep my neclaces from getting too tangled. So after looking on Pinterest and running to Hobby Lobby I was able to make one! Here is what I did:

I found a shadow box at Hobby Lobby on clearance because the glass was missing..

Painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint

Distressed it and then waxed it to seal it...

Added material to the back, made fabric flowers and added them. Then screwed in some cup hooks that I had spray painted to get rid of the brassy look...
Voila.. a necklace holder (I could use some more color in my choice of necklaces, haha)
It cost me about $10 to complete this project..  If you don't wear jewelry, this would be great for keys.. I have found some projects for hubby to do, BUT that's another story for another day!!
