Krylon Dual Paint + Frame = Necklace Display




Introduction: Krylon Dual Paint + Frame = Necklace Display

I've been wanting to make a necklace holder for a while. Mine just get tangled collect on my sunglass shelf. And honestly, I can't remember half of what I own, which means I never wear them.

Step 1: What I Started With, a Basic Frame

This is what I started with. Nothing fancy, just a good sized frame. I really wanted more details on the frame, but for $2, I wasn't going to complain.

Step 2: Supplies

I then hit up Lowe's, and picked up some trim for $5 (I already had the Gorilla wood glue at home). Just a suggestion. Measure before you cut to see if you have enough wood. I cut first, then realized I only had enough wood to go on top and bottom, instead of all the way around like I planned. So one of my wood pieces has a seam on it. Oops.

Step 3:

I attached the trim and let it dry over night. Then I laid it out on my super fancy painting station (otherwise known as a bar stool with a trash bag wrapped around it)

Step 4: The Spray Paint

Then I got out my spray paint that Krylon was nice enough to let me try. I usually use Kilz primer (when I remember to primer) so I was really excited to try this out. I'm all about saving steps where I can. It went on super easily, wasn't thick and gritty like Kilz can be. I did three coats, it had really great coverage.

Step 5: The Holes

Next I marked and drilled my holes. Most I spaced out every 1.5 inches, some I did at 2 inches (for those chunkier necklaces). I drilled the holes with my dremel. They're not pretty, it took me a few holes to realize that I needed to put the drill bit on my mark, and then turn it on. If I already had it turned on, it would just skitter and dance all over the place. Then I screwed the hooks in the holes (I picked up a pack of I think 50 hooks at Walmart for $3). My holes were a bit too big for the hook screw part, but it wasn't anything a drop of E6000 didn't fix. I admit, I need more patience with my crafts, and should have waited for the cordless drill to charge so I could use the correct size drill bit, but I make it work.

Step 6: Antiquing Glaze

I picked up some antiquing glaze at Lowe's for $8 (they don't sell it at Home Depot, FYI). I've been dying to try this stuff out, and knew it would give my necklace display some depth and dimension.

Step 7: Putting on the Glaze

It's super easy to use, just apply it with a stiff bristle brush, it has about a 15 minute window that you can mess with it. Make sure you get into all the nooks and crannies.

Step 8: Finishing Up the Glaze

Then take a paper towel and wipe it off. You can take off a lot or a little, it's up to you.

Step 9: Finished!

And then it's time to hang it up!

    Thank you for a great Instructable! I made one for my little girl and I love the antiquing glaze. I would have never known about it before your directions and will be using it on other projects in the future.

    I used a frame I already had that looked cool. I got it done in 1 evening. Now I can reorganize my jewelry box. But, now I am inspired to add trim peices to something in the future. Thanks!

    WONDERFUL!!! I have my first booth show coming up next month and was trying to figure out how to display my jewelry I'm making. Perfect idea. I'll add little "arms" on each side and maybe middle and use as a slightly tilting stand. :)
