It’s a girl thing

Adora salvages a broken picture frame and turns it into a display for her jewelery.

“Many years ago, my roommate accidentally broke the glass of my picture frame. I cut a piece of some used presentation board, and cover it up with Ikea Pernilla fabric leftover from another project. Insert it to the frame, added clear pins (also reused from presentation) to hold my jewelery. It is now hung in my walk-in closet next to Flang, which is holding the necklaces. (I reckon that cork boards are better choice, but I didn’t want to spend any money.) This set up is great for me, because I often forget my jewelery when they are in a box. This way, it is easy to pick out something for the outfit.”

    I like the idea, but i agree with jon b about the fabric choice. I would use a solid color, maybe velvet. Good job, though!

    great idea. It’s not hard to see the jewelry with a complex background like the print shown?
