I wanted one, but more specifically I wanted to make one for myself!
So I gathered Materials….
This took a while (a couple weeks before I figured out what frames to use) I settled on clearance rack Michael’s shadow boxes and radiator grating from Home Depot. I liked the grating better than the chicken wire or Rat wire options it is finished(coated) and looks slick.
And while it took a couple weeks to figure out supplied it took more than a few months to actually get started…..
…..I am a busy lady, what can I say.
so disassemble the frames:
Trim the Grating with tin snips
replace glass with the grating in one frame:
Putting the spacers back into their original spaces.
Test it out!
yup it works, those little holes are perfect for keeping earrings from tangling.
next add a cool piece of scrap mat board, and close the back of the second frame:
Add the hardware, two hinges, some cup hooks:
and Add Jewelry:
I made mine a little bigger than I thought I needed, I do not have a large jewelry collection.
I had left over Grating and found a few cool frames!
