Let me apologize in advance for the poor (dark) quality of the photos you are about to see. Embrace the concept…it’s a good one. I’ve been meaning to make a jewelry display board for awhile now, and just haven’t. Sidenote: thanks to the roommates for the inspiration 🙂
We were at Walmart last night, and I saw this cork board on sale, and knew that it was meant to be.
To follow these directions, you’re going to need to buy a board that isn’t in a frame. Like this one. It can be done with a framed cork board, but then you have to change up the way that you attach your fabric.
Buy enough fabric to cover the cork board plus about 3 inches for each border.
If you’re using stripes (or really, a fabric with any geometric pattern), make sure that it’s straight up and down. I had to refit the fabric a few times in order to make that happen. Alright, once you’re satisfied, secure the corners. Make them pretty.
Voila! Now, you have a functional way to organize and display your bling, and it doubles as a wall hanging.
In other news, I’m making a big batch of Stir Fry Mess. It’ll feed me dinner and at least a couple more meals this week. Score!
