As soon as I saw Amanda from KevinandAmanda.com make one of these, I knew I had to try it! Only recently did I start adding hoops and dangly earrings to my collection. I was always a pretty simple stud or small drop kinda girl. Now that I have more of a selection, I have no were to put them! I jumped at the chance this weekend to give it a go and make my very own Dangly Earring Display.
This was actually my second frame. My first one ended up being hollow on the backside which didn’t leave anywhere to attach the wires! In a pinch, I had this one laying around.
I was in Walmart and lo and behold, they had the paint I wanted! Saved me a trip to the craft store! Now that the project is done, I might need to rethink my color choice. My walls are beige and most of my earrings at this point are silver. So it needs a little something. Maybe I can spice it up with a color frame! Any suggestions on color?
As you can see in the first photo, my backup frame was very simple. It didn’t have that molding/wood feel. I felt kinda silly doing a distressed look on something so modern looking. So I got a little creative while painted and tried to add in some corners… what do you think??
Now time for the wire. Again, back up frame gave me some challenges. But we ended up getting the wires attached with a staple gun. As for measuring the spaces? I started too, but ended up pretty much just eyeballing it. They look straight right? hehehe
So that’s it!! I am really happy with the way it came out, and I woke up and walked by it and loved having a clean dresser top! Thanks to Amanda for such a great idea!!
Let me know if you try to make one, I would love to see it!!
