Custom Earring Holder

I found this vintage looking mirror at the DI for $5. It was that really tacky brass color. It was covered with spider webs. But I looked past that and bought it anyway. I was planning on just painting it and keeping it as mirror in our bedroom. Then I saw this idea


I chose semi-gloss black spray paint to do the job...


and gave it a good coat. I had some square chicken wire laying around and I got to thinkin'. Once the paint was dry I then cut my wire to fit around the back on the frame. I hot glued the wire to the back.

and waa-la! My very own custom earring holder. Perfect for my closet! The idea (link) above, she uses a screen. With the screen you would be able to put all your studs up as well. My chicken wire is a little to big for that!


You could also do this for babies hair bows...



And yes......



Ive painted our bedroom!

With this being my inspiration for our bedroom redo. We'll see how this goes...
