My DIY Window Frame Jewelry Display
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:
My DIY Window Frame Jewelry Display 

DIY Jewelry Storage Board

  1. Using an X-Acto knife, cut balsa wood to fit the dimensions of the windowpanes.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Attach the finished boards to the windows with a glue gun.

Easy, right?
