I Nearly D.I.Y -ed

Firstly, this post may win some kind of award for worst title ever.  Secondly, I sort of love a good-bad play on words.  Thirdly, I like making things that I wouldn’t usually buy.  I’m not really a ‘I could make that at home myself’ kind of gal.  So when I do D.I.Y, it’s normally to make something that I couldn’t find elsewhere.

With Summer on our doorsteps it was time to find a new way to house my tangle of hardly used necklaces.  Two old picture frames from a charity store (both for the price of a take away coffee), some dusty pink velvet, a few gold hooks, a lick of white paint and there wah, my necklaces and head bands have never felt snazzier.
