diy jewelry board

i just moved to a new apartment in NYC, and decided to take the opportunity to try my hand at DIY housewares. after years of stashing my jewelry in plastic sandwich bags in a drawer, i figured it was time to come up with a better way to store and display my accessories.

i hit up the upper west side (columbus square is a mecca for home decor and crafting stores) to find a cork board and some other DIY materials:

1 cork bulletin board (add a frame if you can't find one already framed)
1 box of push pins
1 sheet of stick-on beads

i installed the cork bulletin board in my new york closet and adorned each push pin with a stick-on bead, just to make them a little less "cubicle" and a little more "jewelry box."

my roommate sara calls this bulletin board "the jewelletin board."
