Kara has pulled out the Paint AGAIN!!!

SIMMER DOWN NOW....the paint is not going on the walls this time...its goin on the Frame,  WHEW!

Once the first coat of paint is dry, Flip that frame on its Belly and put a Frame Hanger on the top...
I like the "Zig-Zag" {very Technical Term} hangers becaude they give you a little room to get your fram to hang Perfectly Level.....

Whats that Saying???   Measure ONCE,  mount hanger on Frame 800 times???   WHAT????  I got it TWISTED???   DANG!  That wouldve saved me a LOT of time!!!   JK...Measure 800 times, mount hanger once!    There ya go!

I like to add a dab of Hot Glue to my finger,  I mean the Zig Zag hanger for extra "The frame hanger is on Secure" ....

OK!  DUNZO with the "Mechanical" part...NOW its ALL ABOUT adding your touch to the FRONT!

So, I had these Caaaaute lil "Princess Crown" coat hooks ON HAND!  Man....Im tellin ya, Ive got MORE stuff in my workroom!  Ive got Drawers FULL of goodies...I MEAN, goodies are PACKED in like PICKLES!!!  I could craft for WEEKS with JUST what I have in my Workroom!!!

You KNOW I Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve me some "Shimmer Paint"!  Cuz its like Bling-Bling!

I just lightly brushed some on do it would look "Weathered"....Hhhhmmmm, Weathered In SHIMMER.....
Not sure thats POSSIBLE unless God is letting it Rain SPARKLE and SHIMMER....Anyhoo, it Rains shimmer at Karas house!  SO!  Moving along :0)

AGAIN...Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo  Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!
Now shes pulled out the GLAZE!!!  For the LOVE of PETE!!!  Does this lil quart of glaze EVER get Empty???  Its like the Bottomless Pit!  Like the Black Hole....Which BOTH of those terms are FANTASTIC descriptions of MY PURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  LOL!  THAT could be a POST in itself!

Ok!  I was talkin about the Can of Glaze that NEVER ENDS!

I have applied the Bottomless Pit Glaze to soften the paint a bit more...

And NOW the CROWN!

I mounted it to the top center...and added a little glaze...

Then touched up the screws...

And...Dere she is!

NOW!  Where to hang it.....

{Insert the music from Jaws}  I about to open my CURRENT "Jewely Container" that holds the jewelry I wear daily....The other jewelry is in a Jewelry box in my closet...Not this accessible...Here Goes....


E Gads!!!  What a Hot Mess!!!   How can I even find what I need????

Das just PLAIN BAD!   Cant find what Im looking for...things get Hung on each other...LITERALLY!
I put a necklace on one day and the "Full Length Mirror, Right Before You Leave the House" check revealed a PROBLEM...I looked at my Necklace and realized there was an EARRING hung on it!
GOOD GRIEF!  NEVER a dull moment with Kara!   PLUS...your jewelry can get scratched from rubbing against each other...

Like THIS RING!   Im going to have to get it polished!

PERFECT SPOT!   VERY accessible!

Now time to add all the BLING!

Fish hook earrings slip right through the screen!  SO SIMPLE!

You will need something to slip through the screen that you can then hang your jewelry on

Bend em like this and they work like a charm....

For Rings...


And the Princess Crown....PERFECT for all my Necklaces!!!

All DUNZO!!!  Aaaahhh...I can BREATHE easier now!
