    Fabulous! I have tried something similar in the past but found that some of my necklaces were a bit too heavy for the push pins. Any thoughts on a sturdier option?

    I love it! Your collection of jewelry is beautiful! I have a similar set up in my closet and used hook eye (? I think that's what they're called) and they are really sturdy and work well.

    Great idea Jenn. I was going to mention eye hooks. I was trying to do my budget with things I had at home so push pins worked for me.

    I have a couple of heavier pieces on the board and I just a couple of push pins throughout the piece to hold it in place.

    Linds I keep telling Jon he needs to surprise you in Boston one weekend and do projects for you!

    He is slowly coming around to the idea. 🙂

    Looks great! Is it hanging in your bedroom or bathroom? I'd love a big board like that, but there is no room in my bath or closet.

    Hey Cassie,

    It's hanging behind the door of my bedroom. It works perfectly there. I can get to it when I need to, but during the day while my door is open it doesn't look like a totally girly room so my husband is okay with it.

    This is a great idea! It's functional and creates a piece of art at the same time (:

    Hi, I just stumbled across your blog today and am so glad I did! This jewelry hanger looks too cute, I might just have to use something similar for all my long necklaces that are currently stored in a drawer. I feel like when you see them on display you are more likely to come up with fun combinations to outfits!

    I made a pinboard for my living room covered in cotton duck. Used spray adhesive and lots of nailhead trim. After I hung it, the fabric (which seemed really stretched tight before) puckered. Have you had this happen? I am known to be a little uptight about details….so I might be the only person this bothers. Or do you have a trick :)?

    So functional! I love a DIY using items you already own. Those are always the best, aren't they?

    I’ve been looking for something easy to do to keep my jewelry organized (aka help remind me of what I already have). I think this is definitely within my limited DIY capabilities & tools 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

ready to finally love your space?

yes! I'm ready!
