I originally created this fabric-covered corkboard as an inspiration board for my office. Since moving to a new apartment and changing the decor of my living area, I felt that this board could be best used for displaying jewelry in my bedroom. I have a perfectly fine jewelry box, but if I can’t see my jewelry, I won’t wear it. All of the materials together cost about $15 and the project took about an hour.
Here’s how to create your own DIY jewelry organizer:
Start by ironing your fabric to get all of the wrinkles out.
Spray the corkboard with spray adhesive and lay the fabric over it. Make sure to smooth out any air bubbles.
Spray the excess fabric with spray adhesive and fold it over the back of the corkboard as if you were wrapping a present.
Following the line of the frame, stick flat head tacks into the board to create the faux nailhead look. My thumbs started hurting during this part so I used a hammer.
Stick larger tacks into the body of the board however you would like your jewelry arranged. I just lined mine about three inches from the top of the board and about two inches apart.
Voila! You have your very own customized jewelry display!
Last weekend, I met my Aunt and Grandpa at Daveste Vineyards in Troutman, N.C. and had such a lovely time that I wanted to bring Kevin back this weekend. Well, I was running late (after purchasing this new clutch from Nordstrom) and when we made the turn down the vineyard’s gravel road, we were met with a wedding.
We parked and snuck out to the furthest rows of vines to snap some pics but on our way out we had to dive back into the rows to avoid the Bride and Groom taking their own photographs! I hope we were covert enough to go unnoticed!
Regardless, my hopes of sampling the local wine while relaxing in rocking chairs were dashed. Hopefully next time we visit, we can enjoy the scenery instead of wedding crashing!
If you know me, you know I have an unhealthy obsession with horror flicks. And not just any horror flicks, slasher movies. But ever since the Saw franchise came to a close, I have had to settle with a little less gore.
That being said, I still appreciate a good campy movie, so Kevin and I went to see You’re Next tonight. Though the concept was familiar, I would still recommend it. But nothing as of late has compared to The Conjuring. Kevin put it best in this instagram.
Next on my list is Insidious 2. And if I’ve put you in the mood for a good scary movie now, grab some popcorn and check out my top 10:
The Fourth Kind (took the Paranormal Activity found-footage concept but made it actually scary)
The Descent (touches on a wide range of fears)
Any Saw movie (except for the 3D one)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (classic)
Cabin Fever (Rider Strong, that is all)
House of 1,000 Corpses (fell asleep with this on in the background and had the worst nightmares)
