I’m always crafting, but being named the home/DIY expert at Redbook magazine has given me even more of an excuse to share my DIY creations with all of you. I hope everyone enjoyed seeing the yard sale chair makeover that I shared last month. Today I have another Redbook crafty creation that I haven’t had a chance to share on ediTORIal yet. Just like my chair makeover, this project proves that you don’t have to spend a lot for chic home décor. All it takes is a good eye and a little imagination to turn a bargain find into a work of art.
I bought this window frame for $10 at a flea market, and then transformed it a storage solution for all my vintage baubles. It was an easy project and my mini craftista Stella even helped out. Here’s the how-to from the pages of Redbook:
DIY Jewelry Storage Board
- Using an X-Acto knife, cut balsa wood to fit the dimensions of the windowpanes.
- Attach batting to one side of the balsa with spray-on glue. Place fabric over the batting and pull it taut, then staple it to the backside of the balsa.
- Use an awl or drill to make holes in the back of the balsa, then screw hooks (just do it by hand) through the front of it.
- Attach the finished boards to the windows with a glue gun.
