DIY Necklace Display

I love when everything has its place and is neat and tidy...doesn't always happen. In fact the last few years my things have been here, there and everywhere. Sometimes feeling as though I am living out of a suitcase. I recently started coming up with solutions to organize my truck load of clothes, shoes and accessories. While going through my parents attic filled with items for over 350 years, I came across a top to an old mirror. Quickly I saw the possibilities and went to work on them. I found this item in my parent's house; if you don't have the luxury of an old basement or attic, I suggest Thirft Stores, yard sales,and here on Nantucket we have what is called the Take it or Leave it. I know people that have furnished their million dollar homes with refurbished items from the "Madaket Mall". 

 What discovery I made in the attic, It just  needed to be cleaned up. 

Holes were spaced and drilled for the drawer knobs. 

Drawer knobs screwed in. 

Added wire to the back to hang the new display. 


All in all it took about an hour to complete. Not bad!

What you'll need:
A piece of wood
Drawer knobs: buy online or find random knobs at thrift stores, yard sales etc. 
Eye hooks for wire to hang. 
Nail to attach to wall or mirror hook
