Since the addition, Scott has been taking a nice long break from any larger projects around here. I don’t blame him; he put in a lot of hours. But this weekend it was time and I wrote Scott a honey-do list. We knocked a few things off, even a few that weren’t on the list like clearing out his garage that was a T-total disaster since the addition.
My favorite project from the weekend though was my jewelry holder to finish off our new closet. And what I love most about it is it was less than $5 for us. We already had an 8’ piece of wood and the stain. So it was just up to me to buy the eye hooks and two pieces of metal rod. After I stained it the same as my shoe rack, I simply lined up several rows of eye hooks, alternating its placement between rows. I left the first few rows for necklaces, 3 rows in the middle to put a bar to hang my earrings and finally a last row of hooks for my scarves, belts and smaller purses.
So here it is on the wall after Scott attached it with a few screws.
You can see how I placed the eye hooks here. I’m happy with the horizontal spacing but to be honest, I really should have increased the vertical spacing between each row. I did 6” vertically and 1.5” horizontally. For the earring section, I did 3”.
Lexi loves jewelry and helped me sort it out and hang a few things. OK, for real, she hung up two necklaces and then skedaddled.
Here it is completed:

Rings and bracelets were hung from the last row in the necklace section:
Now I have NO excuse not to wear jewelry!
And finally, I have a small collection of jewelry that I just don’t see me wearing, some of it still with tags on. If you see something of interest, let me know and I can text/email you a clear picture and drop it in the mail for you. I just couldn’t seem to make myself trash it!
