Hang ups

A couple of weeks ago I attended a housewarming party of a friend of mine who moved in just a few blocks away from us. Her house is small and cute and all hers, which is fantastic. Upon touring the home and ending in her bedroom I noticed how she had stored her jewelry, necklaces in particular. I am always getting my necklaces tangled so I end up laying them out all over the top of my dresser. Effective for not getting them tangled but not so tidy looking. So over the long weekend I grabbed an old cork board that I had stored away in the basement, cut a length of fishing line and bought a pack of picture hangers et voila---necklace storage!
I added the ribbon at the top for decoration and it hides the fishing wire that is used to hang the cork board. There's plenty of room for more necklaces and the beauty of the cork board is that you can rearrange it at any time.
