When we packed up our house Lee tried to get me to toss the drywall frames. “You can do them again if you really want them, but you probably won’t use them.” More than likely he was going to be right but I could not do it. I was thinking of many ways I could re-use these. Today, I am glad that I didn’t pitch them. For those of you who don’t know what I am talking about this is my drywall frame wall in my old house. You can see how I made them here:
Thankfully I packed some of them with my lamps, which was a box that I unpacked. I forgot they were in there so I was pleasantly surprised! I didn’t know how I would use them but I knew that I would figure it out. I am into organizing my stuff these days. I have lived out of suitcases, bags and boxes for the last four months so its kind of the way I am figuring out what I have. I was planning on doing a cheap jewelry organizer from a Pinterest Pin like this one or this one until I glanced over at my drywall frames and thought…I could use those. I grabbed a box of pins out of my sewing box and this is what I came up with.
Who knew that Drywall + Jewelry could equal storage. They are an Odd Couple but they work together well. For those of you who wasn’t reading my blog a year ago, I covered a cut up piece of clearnace drywall to hang on the wall. It served as a psuedo bulletin board. Here is how I did it. Each frame cost me about $1.50. The drywall takes a little more “umph” to get the pins in, but when they are in…they are sturdy
I did find this burlap covered canvas at Wal-mart for $3.97
You are getting a little preview of my new master bedroom. Do you see the green? I love green but wow…it is bold. It also is so bold that it shows the imperfections on the wall…because your eye naturally is drawn to that wall. I am learning that if you have a wall with imperfections…maybe fix the imperfections before painting bold OR paint the wall a more neutral color.
Its a rental so it is what it is….so I am working with it. . It works much better for earrings than the drywall. I love the color that my jewelry adds to the room without having to hang any decorations.
Have a great weekend.
