de-cluttering the home





Hi Folks!
Happy weekend. I thought I'd show you this little diy earring holder that Winslow and I (okay, mostly Winslow) made. It was my idea, but he fashioned it for me because it involved a lot of wire cutting.
We used an old frame we had in the basement, a piece of fabric for the backing and a foot of chicken wire (1.99$ a ft Home Hardware). And it was really simple to put together.
Just take out the glass from the frame and measure the amount of chicken wire you'll need from the size of the glass. We ended up having to trim it a bit to make it fit better. Then we folded the fabric over the cardboard piece that came in the frame and then popped the backing back into it. Easy peasy!
I now have a very attractive way to display my earrings and my dresser looks very pretty with it on top. I'm one step closer to de-cluttering our bedroom!

  4. Thanks for sharing that idea. I had been trying to come up with some thing to hold my earrings for a while now and couldn't come up with a good idea on my own at all. Looks great!
