I really apologize for the month-long absence.
I have moved cities and am settling down. A lot of organization and decoration projects are going on simultaneously and with no computer access for 25 days.. meant no blogging . I have been taking pictures of the projects as they go on and will blog as they get done.
Today i completed a really cool orgn project in a really quick time. I love my dangly earings and have loads of them. They were squished up and stored in a shoe box for the move . I don’t have a drawer to keep them but a very narrow shelf. Its only 10 inches deep and about 18 inches wide. This shelf is near the mirror (yet to be hung up) and has storage on the side.
I needed the solution for the varioys jewellery like
- Dangly earnings
- simple earings that are Non dangly
To make the Foam board pretty, I decided to cover it with fabric.
The fabric is about 2 inched larger than the board on all sides.
Soak the fabric in liquid fabric starch and cover the board . To remove excess water, I used a squeegee and left it out to dry for about 20-25 mins.
Leaving about an inch from the sides , I nailed down some cable clips . I started vertically on one side . The Horizontal gaps between the clips is also about an inch. I then replicated the same on the other edge.
In order to determine the length of wool i started threading the clips starting from the top left, moving in a horizontal line to the clip at the right.
Next i moved vertically to the clip below and then moved left horizontally. I continued the same till i reached the last clip on the right hand side.
I cut three inches more than the exact length.
Pull out the Wool. start again from the left hand corner but this time tie a knot with one end of the wool.
Loop on the right hand side and tie a knot to the clip, keeping the wool as taught as possible.
Continue the same path but with knotting the wool to the clamp at every stage.On the last Clamp, I double knotted the wool and cut the extra length off. If using wire, A loop around the clamp should do. Thats It. I could have decorated it a little bit more but that’s fine.
I had an old cutlery set that came with a stand to hand cutlery from. I use the cutlery , but did not like the stand so much for the cutlery. So I hung watches from it. I also hung some of my favorite bangles
So what do you think of the space. Do let me know
