As I mentioned last week I’ve been trying to fix up my new office space and I found some furniture from craigslist that needed to be painted. Mistakenly I bought latex primer, which needed 7 days to fully cure, so while I waited I started on a project for my new dressing room.
I already have a great piece of furniture from Ikea to store my jewelry but it wasn’t working so well for my super long earrings. I found this diy earring frame on pinterest that I just adore but I could not find the radiator grates at the Home Depot here in Canada.

There are a lot of other options that I could have used but I really didn’t want to use mesh or lace so I scoured the Dollarama for some ideas. Here’s what I came up with!
I made two frames for $12 and all the items I used were from EFADS and Dollarama. Here’s how I made them!
I bought these cork tiles that came in a package of two and a roll of this silver filigree contact paper from Dollarama (both $2).
I removed the glass from the frames and cut the cork and contact paper to the same size as the glass. I peeled the backing off the contact paper, smoothed it onto the cork and popped the covered cork back into the frame (without the glass).
While I was in the dollar store there were these fantastic rhinestone pushpins but they were quite large. So I decided to make my own with clear pushpins and a package of self-adhesive rhinestones (both $2). I just took a rhinestone and stuck it on the head of the pushpin.
I pushed the pins onto the covered cork and hung the frames on the wall. It took me ten minutes to make each one and it was super easy! I have some empty wall space left so I’m thinking of making a couple more in the future. Here are some pics of it in my dressing room.
