Organizing My Jewelery with a New Borard

For months I have been trying to finish this jewelery board to organize my necklaces, finally I finished it!
The jewelery board is made from an old frame I had. I covered it with white burlap.
Under the burlap is a piece of poster board, then wrapped in batting,then covered with the burlap.
I made some burlap flowers and added some lace trims.
Make sure that the batting and burlap are secured tight. I used extra long pins to hang my jewels.
I still need to finish hanging all my jewelery on it,I hope it all fits!
So, the finished product, hanging in my room! I hope you liked it!
I hope everyone out there has a beautiful weekend! And remember find beauty in the simple life! Happy Creating, Junking & Decorating!!!

OK, are you ready for the BLING??? I keep my bling in silver trays,muffin tins,satin boxes,& jars. Remember, someone once said "you create what you see" that's why I keep everything out, where I can see it!

I know that storage is always a problem so, just be creative and use whatever you have. The more unique the better.
