The jewelry display is pretty much done...
I need to add more eyelet hooks so I can finish adding earrings. This tray is not large enough for all of my jewelry, so I guess I'll have to find another tray and make another display to go with this one.
I added the hooks to the sides for necklaces...I just need to add a few more (and the necklaces). I was too impatient to do that before this post;)
I'm not sure if I want to add hooks to the bottom. I think I'll just save that for the next display.
Here's how I made this thing
It began like this...
Michael sprayed a coat of primer, then used this paint... two cans
I then added the hooks and eyelet hooks found at Lowes. To get the hole started, I used a sharp extra pointy knife, then just used my fingers to screw them in. It will make your fingers so sore, so I had to do a few each day for several days.
I'm soooo glad it's done. I'll think I'll go antique-ing next week to find another tray:)
Hope you all have a great weekend

It turned out perfect! Great idea, love the hooks on the side.ReplyDelete
Good idea!! I've been wanting to take a picture frame, back it, pad it, punch in nails to hang my neckaces. This has inspired to me to get going!!ReplyDelete

It looks fab! I don't wear earrings, but I could hang my pendents in one like this... if I ever find a tray like that of course! A suggestion for screwing in the hooks - use a pair of pliers, jewellery making ones if possible and nylon jawed would be best, but you could just wrap your normal pliers with a bit of duct tape so they don't dent the hooks.ReplyDelete
