Little project

Some Christmas gifts inspired me to take on a project--here are the results.  I got a few pieces of fun jewelry from my mom, my sister, and Greg.  I have a gorgeous jewelry box my grandfather made years ago, but since we have a big closet rather than a bedroom set (i.e. dresser, bureau, whatever) I don't have any place to put the jewelry box except for in the drawer of my bedside table.  This makes it difficult to get into the box and keep jewelry organized.  My sister had some really neat-looking earring organizers on her dresser in Indy, and I liked the look of them, but decided to go in a slightly different direction.

Step 1:  Corkboard (from Ikea, duh)

Step 2: Cover corkboard with fabric (from Ikea, duh)

Step 3: Display jewelry (not from Ikea, duh)

And there you have it!  An easy, inexpensive, and if I do say so myself, quite delightful Sunday afternoon project.

Now you need to blog about the Eagles win...and the Colts loss.
And the new TV.
