I’ve been wanting to tackle this project for awhile!
I have a large jewelry box but it just doesn’t do the job!
It only holds about 8 necklaces & when you put them in the drawers they are a tangled mess. It was seriously getting out of control.
I had some extra bulletin boards at the howse so I decided to make a jewelry board… Obviously As Seen on Pinterest. Don’t have the exact link..as there is only five bajillion to choose from!
I started out going to spray paint my boards..
It was really windy and I tried to use a texture spray paint. Ugh! That was an effin mess of piss me off! I ended up just trying to wipe it off and taking them inside and painting them with some acrylic paint I already had. Mind you this was my SECOND attempt at spray painting the boards! Saturday I came home with a can from Wally World & the nozel wouldn’t work..so it wouldn’t spray…ugh! After I threw a little baby fit..I succumbed to the reality that I couldn’t finish my long awaited project that evening 🙁 Sunday after church I went back to Wally World & exchanged the can of spray paint. They didn’t have any left of the kind of got the day before…so I had to settle for a less sparkly not as perfect kind :/
aaaaand we see how that turned out! UGH! The can ran out after only doing 1/3 of the board AND the texture did not spray out evenly & it looked like a clumped up mess. No pic of the craziness..I was way too ticked!
The day before I went to Hobby Lobby looking for cute scrapbook paper to use for the board… But the more I looked at it and thought about it.. I decided on painting it a solid color. I knew once I got all my necklaces on there it would just look a crazy mess if I used a design.
I found these big headed tacks at Mardel and decided to paint them.
It took just two coats to cover the plastic.
(the tacks after the 1st coat)
Ready to go!
I made two boards and hung them both in my bathroom on two walls that have been empty since we moved in.
The best thing about using tacks is you can easily move them around the board where you need them.
I had some sparkly brown tulle & just hot glued it on the edge. I already had the cross hanging in the bathroom….I just got a tack & hung the cross on the edge of the board.
