Yesterday, I shared with you my efforts to zest up my appearance, chiefly by working in accessories to my outfit choices. When I first started, I found that I had some pieces that I could easily work into multiple outfits, but I would often forget I even owned them because they were buried at the bottom of a basket. Especially after I received my Stella and Dot purchases, I knew I needed to come up with a way to display my growing jewelry collection. Here's what I came up with:
A simple cork display made from a frame I had on hand from a baby shower of yore. I took the glass out of the frame and glued some cork (cut to size from a roll I bought at the craft store) to the backing. I had some left over fabric from my bench project, so I wrapped the cork in it, gluing it to the back after folding in the corners like a present. I picked up some cute thumbtacks at Office Max and hung up my jewels.
And now each time I open my closet, there's a bit of bling to greet me...which makes me happy! Plus, it really has helped me accessorize. When thinking of an outfit, I just have to look up there to see what will work...and if nothing does, I'm on a mission to find a piece that will! I figure that's a good way to build a jewelry collection, right?!?
