Jewelry Box Idea


Happy New Year everyone. I hope your Holidays were all that you expected and then some. Can you believe that it's 2014 already? It's the start of a  new year and we all know what that means, more resolutions, more goals and GETTING ORGANIZED. Since I'm not big on resolutions, I've made a few short term goals for this year, and got a jump start on some organizing.



I love costume jewelry, but as you can see, I had no place to store all of it.  So I enlisted the help of Hubby and came up with a simple solution to solve my jewelry dilemma.



Here's a list of things needed for this project.
( 2 ) 8ft pieces of pre-primed 1"x4", 1/2 sheet pegboard ( 1 ) 4ft long 1/4 inch wide dowel, finishing nails, picture frame wire and eyelets.
Instructions.... Hubby cut 2 pieces of pine 5ft long and 4 pieces 12 inches long, and constructed a box.



 

To create the shelves Hubby used the ( 2 ) remaining  12" pieces and nailed them to the 5ft long pieces.
 An extra piece of pine was used as a guide to space the shelves equally apart.
.

This is how the box should look after the frame has been constructed.

Next, a piece of peg board was cut to size.......



and nailed onto the back of the box.



 Picture wire and eyelets were added, so the box can be hung on the wall.






The dowel was cut into several 2 inch pieces. The pieces will be used to hang the jewelry on.


Finally, the pieces were placed randomly in the peg board.  Now the fun part.... time to hang the jewelry!




What do you think? 



 I love how the jewelry boxes turned out. I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner.

The instructions are for the 5ft long box. I also had Hubby to construct two 4ft long boxes as well, but you can make them as big or small as you like. The possibilities are endless!



 Thanks for stopping by,
Lory

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
