Old Art Easel = Recycled Jewelry Holder

My friend, Jodie, found this old art easel in a thrift store for $20 and had the most wonderful idea to turn it into a jewelry holder!  She got the idea when she was shopping in Urban Outfitters and saw these:

If you ask me, our version is way better AND it cost a lot less!  Here is how we did it:

Logan and I had some old chicken wire left over from the garden last summer, but you can buy it any home/building supply store (Menards, Home Depot, Farm & Fleet) for about $15 a roll. We took a wire cutter and cut the chicken wire to fit the back of the easel.  We then took a power stapler and stapled the chicken wire to the back of the easel, trimmed up the wire around the edges and we had ourselves a very unique jewelry rack!  You can do this same thing with a vintage picture or mirror frame.  It was super easy and took about 20 minutes!
