Too Much Jewelry....Craft Project!

So I have been really frustrated lately with my necklaces in my jewelry box. They ALWAYS get tangled and I spend 10-15 mins every morning untangling the one I want to wear. I've been on the lookout for a necklace holder - but nothing I saw really would fix the problem. I decided that I wanted a cork board and would put thumbtacks to hold the necklaces. I saw a really cute cork board at hobby lobby with a black frame around it but the actual cork board wasn't that big and it was 20ish dollars. So yesterday at Michael's I found a plain cork board for 5.99 and used some paint I already had at home to brighten it up a bit. Justin and I went on a picture-hanging spree last night and hung my new owl picture (yay!) and my new necklace holder. I'm really happy with how it turned out and am thinking about making another one for the other side of the linen closet because I have a LOT of necklaces :)
