Trash to Treasure: Jewelry Display

A couple months ago, I found a skinny little basic black-framed bulletin board at Goodwill for a couple bucks. It also had a place at the top of it for a 4x6 photo. Not immediately knowing what I was going to use it for, I went ahead and bought it (I apologize for the lack of "before" photo, I could swear I took one and can't find it!)

It then sat in my garage amongst my other Goodwill finds that I have yet to "treasure".

I've been inspired by a lot of the bulletin-boards-turned-jewelry-organizers I've seen on the www lately. I decided that would be the perfect transformation for this little bulletin board find of mine.

First, I had to figure out what I wanted to put in that little 4x6 photo frame. After some thought, I decided a cute quote that would be inspiring in the morning would be the way to go, since I planned on hanging this jewelry organizer in the vanity area I have started making in my closet (more to come on that, by the way!) I will be starting my day there every day - picking out an outfit, putting on makeup and of course, accessorizing with some bling.

I went with this quote by Audrey Hepburn - and got on my computer to make a cute chevron background:

Don't you agree that is the most perfect quote to start your day with (and so fitting for a dressing area)?!

I then put it in the bulletin board frame:

Super-cute, right? Eventually I want to paint the bulletin part of the board, but for now, this definitely works for me.

Here it is, hung up with my necklaces dangling:

I've decided I need to add to my necklace collection...many of my old faves have broken and I haven't purchased any new in a while.

So what do you think of the jewelry board? Now that they are on display, they won't be "outta sight, outta mind"...so hopefully you'll be seeing me with more accessories from now on!

I love that idea. I used to have an old bulletin board somewhere... gonna have to see if I can locate it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Great idea - I especially like how you put the quote at the top. I might try something similar for my dorm room this year.

Love this idea and the message! I have a small space between my closet and a window that I have not been able to figure out what to do with ... and I think I just figured it out! Thanks for the inspiration! (Stopping by from SITS)
