Jewelry Box and Earring Holder

My daughter was sick yesterday so I got to be a stay at home mom for a day! And I LOVED it! It got to take care of my little girl, do some deep cleaning that I have been wanting to do, and CRAFT! I have a whole long list of to do crafts from following all of the wonderful blogs that I do! :) For the life of me, I cannot remember which blog that I found the jewelry box re-make idea, but I did see the earring holder from here!
So I got to mark 2 of them off of my list! Yeah!
Jewelry Holder...
First, I started with a frame I just had!

Then I painted it black!

I had some old placemats that I thought would be perfect! They have a pattern on them similar to burlap - and since I had them, it was FREE! So I cut out a piece and stapled it to the back of the frame. Then I drilled a couple of holes and pulled ribbon through and tied knots. I had a couple of flowers in my scrapbook supplies and thought they would look cute on the frame as well!

Then I simply put my earrings through the little holes and hung it in my bedroom! I love it!

Next was to revamp this tired jewelry box. All of the furniture in my bedroom is black, so I went with the black theme again! I liked the idea of adding fabric to the glass and went with a deep red to match the red accents in my bedroom. I also had a little burlap flower in my stash and added that and a pearl to the front for a little girly-flare!

This is the inside...

And here they are together in my bedroom! Love them!! And better yet, I spent absolutely no money! Yeah! I LOVE stay at home mom days!!
