Jewlery Organizer

This is one of those projects I've been meaning to get to for months, and I finally got it done last week.  I'm SO glad, because all of my necklaces and earrings were tangled in a big mess from the move, and it was taking me forever to find anything. 

I found a plain unfinished wood frame at Hobby Lobby, painted it black and added polyeurethane to make it shiny.  Then I used my trusty staple gun and stapled down some window screen netting.  To prevent earrings from scratching the wall behind, I glued down some fabric in the back--this was actually Jeremy's idea, so he gets the credit.  (Yes, that is the same Amy Butler fabric from Abby's kindergarten graduation dress.  I still love it and had the perfect size scrap for this.)  Then I added some hooks along the bottom and sides for necklaces.  Loving my newfound organization!
