Please give the source propper credit.

I am ready to start blogging but I may have a problem when I see pinterest given as a source for a post I created or anyone else for that matter. As I visited a page that I had liked previously on FB to find the source for a photograph they had posted I found they had credited Pinterest. So I commented to them (after taking less than 5 minutes to track the original source) .... Pinterest is not a source for this pin. They are simply a sharing site.The source for this subway dresser is Sea Rose Cottage's Blog and it has a diy with it. The link was broken and the blogger had not watermarked the photograph. Guess what? I can no longer comment on that site. Not happy about that but I am sure if their items were not given proper credit they wouldn't like it very much. Let this be a lesson don't forget to watermark all of your work. We all work too hard not to be given proper credit.

Make Your Jewelry Part of Your Room

        Make a jewelry board to keep your jewelry neat and add       personality to your room

 Collect your supplies. 
 Choose your frames as simple or ornate as you want. 
 You will need a piece of  1/4 inch plywood to fit your frame.    Choose your fabric to compliment your room and your jewelry.  You will need a piece large enough to wrap around your plywood and a piece of  thin batting to fit the board.  
You will also need an assortment or matching drawer pulls or door knobs and a screw just long enough to go through your plywood and tighten your pull to the board.
You will also need a drill
                                 staple gun
                                 paint for your frames 
                                 a drill to make your hole for your knob             
                                 hangers (strong enough to hold with jewelry)
                                 I used two on mine so they stay straight when
                                    jewelry is placed on it .
I began by sanding my frames lightly and painting them to match my room.  
Your plywood needs to be cut to fit into your frame.
Decide where you want to place your knobs.  Drill the plywood.
Place the batting on the plywood and cover with your fabric wrapping it around to the back and staple in place.
Take your screw for your knob and place it through the hole you made for it.  You may need to punch a hole in the fabric for your screw to go through.  Tighten the knob to the backboard.
Place your board into the frame and staple into place.
I cover the back  of all my frames with brown craft paper.  Spread  white glue along the edge of the frame and place a piece of paper on the back.  After the glue has stared to dry you can take a spry bottle with water and lightly mist the paper.  Use your hair dryer to dry the paper.  This will shrink the paper and give you a professional finish to the back.  
Attach your hangers and enjoy your beautiful jewelry boards.

I would love to hear from you.  Please leave a comment.
