I've found quite a joy in nesting these days. I catch myself day dreaming of home associated projects that are thriving on character, just waiting to be created. While most of them are jotted down in my notebook full of scribbles, waiting for a more appropriate location (for some odd reason, rented spaces don't appreciate a creative coat of paint or walls being torn out...hmpf), I've slowly but surely started to cultivate our happy little space into an inventive one at best.
As to follow my little spiel, here is a simple DIY, perfect for that little nest of your own...
Book Jewelry Display DIY
Supplies: Book, (preferably one that isn't too thick so that it lays as flat as possible when you open it). Knobs, small 10lb hooks, and *optional* photos + swatches.
Pantry Tools: hammer, pen, and screw driver + large screw.
First, mark with a pen where you want your knobs to be.
Then drill holes where you made marks for the knob placements.
Then you'll put the knobs in! This might take a few minutes to wedge them in there but it's definitely best to have the hole a tiny bit too small so that once they are in, they don't fall out.
Next, you'll apply two small hooks (the 10lb hooks should work perfectly!) onto the back, top corners of your book.
Last, decorate! I chose some paint swatches I had lying around from a previous project that just so happened to be some of my favorite shades. I also threw on some of my most cherished photos from this past year.
Hang it on the wall where you can easily access your prettiest of accessories.
Hope your day has been full of bliss.
