Thrift Store Find Re-Purposed

I found this "door" at the thrift store last week.  In it's previous life it was a flower pot it's a necklace holder.  Transformation was super-easy and very quick!
First I removed the pot holder, black key, and wire wreath. 
I removed a couple screws and snipped a few pieces of wire and I was done!

Then I added 14 brass colored cup hooks...found them in my junk drawer. 
But brass was not the look I was going for.

 So I got out a thick black Sharpie and colored the cup hooks. 
Ta Da!  Definitely like the black hooks better!

Then I added some of my necklaces....I think it's looks great!

I thought about adding some chicken wire to an old empty frame and hanging my necklaces on that...but I knew this would be quicker.  Plus I like the look of this much better!

I also added several little nails to the top...they're perfect to hook some of my fun pins on!


You know what else happened really quickly?  Filling up the hooks....yep, everyone of them!

It does look great Marie, and. I love the pins across the top, too! This way, you won't forget what you have. (I'm always finding something in my jewelry drawer I forgot I had)

Now that turned out cute and so useful too! A perfect way to keep the jewelry in sight and easy to grab!

Dear Marie, I so loved your filling up the hooks at once, :-) I could do that,too!
Such a wonderful idea, it looks great and with your pinns on top it is also so sweet!
Hugs, and happy weekend.
