Have you ever attended to a workshop? If you have that’s awesome! (They would love to know what you thought of your experience.) If you haven’t been yet, you are in for a real treat! Here is a basic rundown of some of the awesome resources they offer. They have three different types of classes. —Do-it-Yourself (DIY), Do-it-Herself (DIH), and Kids—geared toward all ages and experience levels. The workshops are held at every store, and offer a variety of topics ranging from home repair to tool instruction, and even building home decor projects!! Not to mention they’re a great place to work on your skills and meet new friends who love to DIY!
Seriously, this months project is absolutely adorable as-is but I, along with a few other blogger friends were challenged to make one with our own creative twists! So without further ado, here is my customized Jewelry Organizer.
I used the same basic structure as The Home Depot’s example. However, I wanted to give it a shabby chic twist, so I decided to make it look like a window. I started by adding a grid/mullions. You can purchase 3/4″ wooden dowels, or you can simply rip them down yourself on a table saw. It was then a case of using pocket holes and/or glue to secure them in place.
I had originally planned on stopping there, but then I had an epiphany. “What is a cottage window without a window box ?!” Simply not as cute, that’s what! So I quickly constructed a shallow box, using 1″x 2″ board as the base, and a 1″x 3″ board to construct the sides.
I love the metal backing that The Home Depot used on their example, but I wanted to take a little more rustic approach. I used some 1/4″ wire mesh as an alternative. (I found mine in the garden/fencing section of my Home Depot. Last thing I needed to do before moving on to the the paint/finish, was selecting my knobs, and then drilling holes to accommodate them. I opted for these “glass” cuties. I wanted to enhance the shabby chic look, with out taking away from the cool paint finish. These little knobs were exactly what it needed!
That’s all there is too it! Here are a few more shots, just because it is so dang pretty!
