Pintastic Project

When Olivia watches TV she watches Disney Junior, or cartoon movies. We don't really watch any other kid channels with her, because basically, I don't like the shows they have to offer. I get stuck watching this crap with right now, she's got to watch stuff that I like. Mostly, I like everything on Disney Junior (with the exception of Jake and the Neverland Pirates, but that's only cause they annoy me to a ridiculous degree with all their Yay Hay Haying....). One of Liv's favorite shows is Chuggington. We call it her Chuggers. She actually says "chugga, chugga". The show is about young talking trains learning how to be good trains from the older trains. Adorable. One of the "main" characters is a train called Coco and when she's excited she says "TRAINTASTIC!" Long story, but that's what I thought of when I wrote the title of this blog. I can just picture Coco jumping on her little train track saying "PIN TASTIC!" CHUGGA CHUGGA CHOO CHOO!

I love Pinterest. I could spend so many hours just pouring over every little pin. I have several boards with TONS of things pinned........ But I NEVER go back and look at them. When we moved into the new house I decided that was over. I WANTED to actually do some of the things I pinned. I have been wanting to make a cool jewelry storage solution for awhile. I pinned this picture....

And decided I NEEDED this in my bedroom. In the original pin they used a towel rod and shower curtain hooks to make the hanger. I've noticed that a TON of crafters use towel rods for crafting. I wanna know where they are buying these! Towel Bars are EXPENSIVE!

Since it was kinda spendy, and I thought it was too big, I decided not to use the towel bar for the hanger part. I had some rusty ugly kitchen towel bars that we had removed from the cabinet under the sink in the kitchen. FREE! I got some spray paint and some S hooks at home depot and got to crafting. I started with 8 hooks.....I think. It was enough for all the necklaces I currently have, but will need some more soon (hopefully).

I really love the way it turned out!

I still have one of the gross rusty kitchen towel bars left, so I think I may do a tutorial..........

This is great! I am so in need of one of those. I don't have enough countertop space in my bedroom, so it has to go on the wall. Those seem to hard to find. I used an iron hook rack from Hobby Lobby and it seems to turn my necklaces to wrong color. Must try this!

Love it! The S-hooks are such a fabulous idea.... I need to pick up some of those at Home Depot. Thanks for sharing!
