Remember the plastic canvas earring holders I made last April? Well, I have apparently expanded my earring collection since then and needed to make room.
My mother-in-law gave me this mirror, which had been hanging in her garage for a while. It belonged to her mom's mom, which would have been my husband's Great Grandma Annie (the same person who gave me her sewing machine).
So, I removed the mirror and the brackets in the back.
I spray painted it the same color as my necklace holder, since I planned to hang them on the same wall. It's Colonial Red by Rustoleum.
I had a growing collection of vintage lace- from a variety of grandmothers and estate sales, and found four of my favorite pieces.
I glued them into the back of the mirror frame with hot glue.
When the glue dried, I turned the mirror frame over and hung it on the wall in my bedroom. And smiled really big.
I still used my plastic canvas earring holder for post earrings, but this design is perfect for the hook type earrings.
I may just have to go buy more earrings tomorrow, so I can fill in a few gaps!
Jewlery is just so pretty to display on a wall.... or on a person!
