Sooo, I was hit by a stroke of genius in my sleep the other night for a way to arrange and organize my jewelry. The next day (yesterday) I went to the store and bought just a plain old cork board for hanging memos and the like, and a pack of thumb tacks. A little bit of paint later, and this is what I had! I'm pretty much in love with it.

The whole thing:


A close up of the filigree in the corner (I'm on a total filigree kick right now):


Here it is hanging on my wall in the bathroom!



I hope you all like it! Comments much appreciated Cheesy

How cute is that !!
I love the red background and the little filigree.
Make me wish I had more room on my wall at my dorm Cheesy (too much posters :p)
Did you just paint on the cork board? What kind of paint did you use?

Thanks! I just used plain acrylic paint.. it made it sort of hard to shove the tacks through, but other than that there were no problems.

That is adorable, and a great idea. I'm thinking I'll do that on my wall once I have my own place, if I put my jewelry out like that now my sister takes it LOL
