This project believe it or not is for my sweet husband.

We have been married for almost 14 years!
My poor guy has not just put up with me but with my jewelry all over the place.
Now I have to be honest it is not just jewelry since I admit to have an “accessory problem”  that includes belts, scarves, purses and shoes.
Well… those messy  days are OVER honey ;)
.
.… because I made a jewelry station that sits right inside of our walk-in closet. I think this is my new favorite place in our home.
.
.~TUTORIAL~
.

Let me start with the Peg Board.

.

FIRST

Before anything else you need to frame the back of the board since it has to come out from the wall…
Yo can use any thin board, 1″ wide  is good enough…
Just make sure all corners are covered for best support.

.

.
.SECOND

After the backboards are ready all you have to do is attach them to the peg board. I used a nail gun but if you don’t have one I am sure you can screw them together.
{ Check out my hands… there is a working woman for you ;) }

.

.

.

THIRD

.

The next thing I did was paint the board.
I chose a really soft powder blue… it is a really light turquoise… it should be called perfection.
The name however is  Sea Air { 5006-9A } and it  is made by Valspar, you can find it at the Home Depot.

.

.
.FOURTH
.

While drying I decided that it needed a little EXTRA, something to try to make it… EXTRAORDINARY.

I had a bunch of molding from a previous project in my garage.
That was it! I was going to frame it!

.

To do this step just measure and cut your four pieces of molding.

.

.
The angle has to be 45 degrees.

.
.
FIFTH
.
Paint your board… I used Krylon Dual Spray Paint + Primer.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
{ Please promise me you’ll do this in an open area… Do it OUTSIDE! }
.
.
.
SIXTH
.
After they have dried, put the boards in place and attach them to your peg board.
Just like this!
.
.
.
SEVENTH
.
Your Peg Board will be heavy so make sure you add the RIGHT HARDWARE to the back of it to hang it.
 I used some thick wire and I just screw it to each side of the back of the board…
.
.
.
YOU ARE DONE WITH THIS PART…
At this point your peg board should look like this.
.
.
.

~THE ACCESSORIES~

.

Now let the FUN begin!

.

SOUP CANS
The first thing I made were my sweet little cans for storage…
You remember them… I poked some holes towards the top of them so I could hang them…

Chicken Wire FRAME

For my earrings I transformed an old frame into a storage unit…

This is SO easy to make:

1. Paint your frame.

2.Cut your wire { it is SHARP} with some pliers.

3. Attach it to the back of the frame nailing down some tacks.

.
You are done!
.

.

.

The Hooks…
.
You can find them at any local hardware store. Wal-Mart sells them too.

You can get a box like this one there for under $5.

.

.

.

The Bracelet Holder
.
This is actually a cup holder that I found at my local Thrift Store for $2…

Not bad!
A little paint did the job and it works like a charm!

.

.

The Tray…

I have had this small “whatever you want to call it” for some time…

I added some fur on top to make it soft and protect the jewelry that wasn’t meant to be hung.

.

.

.

The Baskets

I just got these linen baskets at Wal-Mart also.

To bring some interest I painted some stripes on them.

Now they carry all of  my belts and scarves.

.

.

~THE TRANSFORMATION~

At this point I was ready to put it all together and start hanging my little treasures…

{ don’t dare to call it junk }

.
…The earrings.

.
The rings…

.
The necklaces…

.
And even the sunglasses and my Spanish fans have a place!

.
.
After a few hours of work… Everything was done!
I would love to show you the rest of the closet but I need a few more days for that!
For now this is what I have for you ;)
.
.
.

Pretty AMAZING what a woman has to do some times to show HOW MUCH SHE LOVES HER HUSBAND. Oh, the sacrifices!  ;)

I can’t finish without thanking Amy from Naptime Crafters for the push I needed to finish all of these Home Improvement projects that I had on my to do list.

I’m not sure how I got so lucky to be in the finals of American Crafters with Jaime and Charlie !

This experience was a blast!
