Picture Frame Earring Holder

This is the second in my series of jewelry holders. My earrings were also in those dark drawers, hidden away from view and memory. I’ve got to take these gold keepers out sometime! And now those earrings are right in front of me, saying “Take me out!”.

Oversized Vintage Frame Art

I’m a big fan of breathing new life into old things. This oversized frame project takes a hideously ornate frame – the kind you often see at thrift stores (or on the curb!) – and creates a beautiful statement piece for your wall. I was looking for something to fill a space above my daughter’s dresser and when my elderly neighbour was cleaning out her house, I quickly snapped this up (much to her shock….’why would you want such an ugly thing?’)

Custom Picture Ledge made from Crown Moulding

A design feature I think looks really neat is a picture ledge that crosses an entire wall or a large part of it above a couch, sideboard or other wide piece of furniture.  It is a modern and clean, sleek look but allows for plenty of flexibility in terms of organizing, reorganizing and remixing your artwork and photos. For my new cottage, I wanted to do the same and had considered buying  a couple of ledges from Ikea and using them in a row, something I have done in the past for the baby room.  However, a few things I don’t like about doing it that way are: 1) it is not a seamless connection and you can clearly see the ledge is made of various ledges in a row, and (2) it is never the exact size that would be ideal above a specific couch. I decided to make my own. When I was browsing the wood section of Home Depot, my  eye was caught by the vast collection of crown moulding and I had a DIY AHA moment: some variations of crown moulding would make for the ideal ledge as they would have the built-in “outer ridge” which would prevent the frames from sliding off the narrow “shelf.”
