Before and After - Frame to Jewelry Caddy/Organizer

As you may have guessed I like jewelry. But I don't like wearing some of my jewelry in the shower, pearls and handmade jewelry especially. So I created this little jewelry caddy!

I found this neat little/perfect size frame at the thrift store. Took the picture out and spray painted the frame in my fave color. Next I picked out a fabric that I love, did an accordion like fold to create pockets, then pressed. Sandwiched the fabric between the frame and the original picture. Trimmed the excess fabric on the back side but leaving enough on the sides to pull the pockets out a bit. Then covered the back with the frame backing. That was it! You could probably tape or glue your fabric too for more support, but this one is pretty tight so I didn't. Isn't it great?!


Now let me explain something. I have one of those tiny 3/4 bath rooms. You know, corner shower, pedestal sink and not a cupboard in site. Space is very limited! Every time I wear my jewelry I forget to take it off before I go to take a shower and well, I'm left searching for somewhere to put it. Can't put it on the sink cause it might go down the drain, can't put it on the toilet cause gross! And forget about putting it on the floor cause that's just what would happen, I'd forget about it. This seemed like the perfect thing for my tiny space. It fits perfectly on the wall between my shower and my mirror.

What a beautiful idea! I love how it turned out.

jeana said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

This is great! I have no place to put my jewelry, so it all ends up on the counter. This would be a great solution.

Audra Lynn said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Great idea - that would be so cute in my daughter's room. Thanks for the idea. (and I love your playlist.)

Brilliant! What a great idea. I, too, have one teeny tiny half bath and storage for anything is limited. This is a great solution.

So glad to have you at Woo Hoo! Wednesday!

How creative! I love the color, the fabric, and the way you folded the fabric! This is much cuter than the screen jewelry holders that I've made!

I think we have the same favorite color! I love the oval frame. Those are hard to find it seems. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

Laura said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Wow...how cute, how creative, how simple! I linked to your post at my blog, losbows.blogspot.com -- I made my version of one of these today -- it was super quick and is super cute. I plan to make a bigger one -- my frame was 5x7 and I have a LOT of jewelry ;o). Keep the ideas comin'!

Bec said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Such a great idea! Even for those of us with more space- I tend to forget to take some of my jewelery off and it would be so handy to have it right by the shower. They'd make cute gifts as well!

Nikki said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

val said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

This is darling. I love the concept of it and I love the colors you used. Thanks for sharing at 'Look at me, I'm SO Crafty!' at Fun to Craft.

Kristi said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I've always remember this frame and have been trying to find one. I finally found one last week and I can't wait to do something with it. I'd love to paint it the same shade of green that you did, I've been thinking I'd like to paint it black and use it for Halloween. Good thing about paint though, I can always change it later!
