Happy Pink Saturday~More New Jewelry

I just got back from a craft night with the girls. (That's my mess above). It was a craft till you drop (Drop being midnight for us old folks). I did my jewelry for the show & completed another batch of cool stuff. I have a couple of new pink ones to show for today. The pictures aren't great, as I just took them in the dark. I'll make sure to post better pictures later on today after soccer with the boys. I also finished the frame project I started last week. I need to take that picture, too, so check back.
Remember to visit Beverly, our wonderful host, to see who else is participating this week. I just love Pink Saturday!
Here are the pictures I promised. The background is an adorable window panel I got from Target. I'm going to use it as a table cloth for my display. It's pink damask with chandeliers. I was squealing with delight when I saw it.

Also is the frame I promised with the corkboard & some jewelry on it. I'm not loving it yet. I need to find a simple patterned fabric for the background. I don't want it to compete with the jewelry.

Anyways, here are the steps to make your own jewelry holder/display.

  • Supplies: frames, spray paint (primer & color of choice), cork by the roll, decorative fabric/paper or stencils
  • Buy a frame, any frame... cheap (Wal-Mart, Dollar Store, Goodwill). Take all the guts out (glass, backing)
  • Prime the surface. This comes in super easy spray paint. My frames were originally black, so it took a few coats to get the coverage I wanted.
  • Select the color you want to color your frame & spray away! I love the glossy look so that's what I picked. If you can only find matte, you can use a clear glossy coat to finish.
  • Buy cork by the roll (available at home improvement stores Lowes & Home Depot). I traced the backing to get the measurment of the cork. Place the cork on the backing & put them back in place. Ta Da :)



Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy belated Pink Saturday, Nerissa! I love your jewelry. I use the plain bulletin boards in different sizes and wrap fabric around them and staple it in place. Makes a great backdrop for photography.

Have a grand PINK week!
