DIY Earring Cubbyhole Display

Thanks to a family Pinterest board about Christmas gifts, I picked this pretty and colorful earring display to make for my daughter.

And also thanks to Pinterest, I knew she wanted colors like these in her bathroom decor.

And voila! 

It has so many of my favorite things....turquoise color, shabby funky wood, metal accents and dangly, pretty earrings!

Originally I had remade this shabby cubbyhole box for storage in my craft room. Here's the link for that DIY.

That was a fun project! I add new storage to my craft room all the time using the same basic DIY...turquoise paint and book pages and Mod Podge.

I chose one of the cubbyhole shelves for this Christmas project and my new favorite scrapbook paper of all time...it is printed with shabby painted boards in beautiful colors on one side and natural aged boards on the other. LOVE IT!

This DIY is so simple and with such neat results. I repainted the shelf with the same color and fitted each cubby with that pretty paper then sealed the whole shelf with clear acrylic spray.

I used the cup hooks from my stash for each space. I marked then made pilot holes using a small drill bit to make screwing the hooks in easier. I tried different sizes of brass hooks for this project and liked the scale of these bigger ones.

Oooh aaaah!

I also made the pretty dangly earrings using beads and findings from my stash so this project was a home run from the start.

PLUS, the total cost was minimal since I already had almost everything I needed in my huge hoard of supplies. 

Win win!

I'll be sharing this at these blog parties this week. Come check them out for some great ideas...
