Bonjour, friends! It's Monday yet again... can you believe it? My weekend was a flurry of activities, one of which involved a fun DIY project that was SO incredibly easy that i had to share. Back when i first moved into my apartment, i bought some vintage frames from an antique flea market here in Austin. I planned to make a collage of empty frames on a wall in my bedroom, but it never really worked the way i intended. So instead, they've been collecting dust in my closet. I decided to make good use of them by adding some wire mesh and turning them into chic earring holders! (Forgive the poor quality of the pics.. my cam sucks and i'm a bad photographer - more on this later.) Et voila my finished product!
SO EASY. All you need are empty frames, a roll of wire mesh (used for window screens and found at Home Depot. btw is it just me or are the salespeople @ Home Depot ridiculously helpful?? love them.), a hot glue gun and scissors. I just cut a piece of wire mesh to fit the frame (doesn't have to be perfect), hot glued it to the back of the frame and trimmed the excess mesh. I must confess i didn't do a great job as the back of my frames are not pretty (couldn't sell these babies on Etsy or anything), but who cares? They look fantastic hanging, n'est ce pas?
P.S. Only watched Twilight ONCE this weekend (i know.. impressive) but fully intend on future viewings throughout the week. Rob Pattinson (as Edward) looks mighty FINE on bluray!!
P.P.S. Could someone please explain to me why this leather cuff is $225??
