DIY: Print Drawer Turned Jewelry Display

I found this old newspaper print storage drawer at a flea market a
few months back and had to have it!

I had seen them turned into earring displays on Etsy for $90++++ and decided I could not turn down the opportunity to turn my $15 find into a valuable piece of art/practical storage solution.

I decided to leave it as is, but you could paint yours for a different look.

(minus the fact that I need to invest in more dangly, sparkly, pretty earrings to fill it!)

Anyone who wants to help me fill the empty spaces...just sayin' :)

I ordered these tiny little eye-hooks on Ebay. They are the perfect size for this project and not available in any hardware stores I searched. Plus, I saved a TON...$3.50 for 100 hooks.

This has been a big crafting week for me for some reason!
I got this idea off of Pinterest and I'm in LOVE.

This little practical beauty was FREE. I already owned all the ingredients you see.
BONUS: Your bathroom always smells like coffee. I'd say that's a nice way to wake up!
(French Vanilla is my current "scent")

Color obsession - MINT green

I am currently obsessed with the color MINT! So fresh and pretty for summer. A little inspiration as follows:

Been rockin' the mint nails lately. Revlon makes the perfect shade.
I love how clean, simple, elegant and fresh this room is!
Very sophisticated without being stuffy.

and this...

I WANT THIS DRESS. Always a sucker for a one shoulder little number.

Beautiful. I like the long tables, tablecloths of course and the white flowers.
Simple, Southern and elegant.

Just because. I'm not a big biker...but I could be!
