Message Board to Jewelry Display

I have seen a ton of different jewelry displays out there in bloggy land, so I hope you'll forgive me for adding another one to the mix.

When I first started this blog I posted a framed jewelry tutorial to help organize my beautiful baubles. Well, time has passed, my tastes have changed and my collection of baubles has tripled. I needed something bigger with more places to store things. On a recent trip to Savers, I found this message board for $3 and decided it was the answer to my jewelry needs.

I took it home, sprayed the board with a generous coat of primer and then spray painted the board one of my favorite colors, Bahama Sea.

When the paint was dry, I cut a piece of wrapping paper to the size of the message part of the board and mod podged it into place.

After three coats of mod podge were dry, I marked on the board where I would like my knobs to go. Once I was happy with the positioning, I took out my drill, made my holes and installed the hardware.

Helpful Hint: Use hardware you already have from other projects. The knobs used here are from an old desk I redid and other miscellaneous pieces.

Not only can this ginormous message board hold all of my necklaces, but there are places to store broaches, pins, bracelets, hats and headbands as well!

P.S. Please also forgive the awful lighting...the board hangs in my dungeon of a closet.
