master bath revamps part one {{jewelry hanger}}

So, well over a month ago the hubs and I FINALLY painted our master bathroom.  If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know that my house has very white walls still.  It's the curse of building your own home....standard builder white walls.  We have slowly been working on painting rooms, it's not a money thing as much as a time thing.  Painting=a ton of work, and when you work full time, and are usually quite busy on the weekends, it's hard to dedicate a whole time out to just paint.  I love the end result, but it's tough getting there.

I am gonna show you guys the whole bathroom when it's all done, but I am still finishing up some last minute touches! For now, I am gonna give you a sneak peek at what I've been working on.  After the bathroom was painted, I knew I just needed to work on adding in some gorgeous accessories.  I don't know about you, but I have a constant problem of leaving my jewelry sitting all over the bathroom.  I knew that I needed to find some place to organize it all.

I found a frame that I loved at the thrift store, and I knew immediately that I wanted to add some chicken wire to help hang my jewelry.  I know you have seen all types of those revamps in blogland, but here's what I did.

I started off painting my frame glossy white.  I'm sorry I didn't get a beforehand pic, but the frame was an ugly gold brown.

I cut the chicken wire down to size, and then painted it lightly with the same glossy white spray paint.  I didn't like how harsh the steel color looked against the frame, but I didn't want it to be too white.
Then, I hot glued the chicken wire into the back of the frame.  It was a bit of a challenge getting it to work, but after I got the hang of it, it was a breeze!!  I actually love how simple it was to do, and it adds such a gorgeous touch to the frame.

So, here's the final product all hung up! 

Ahhhh!! Isn't she pretty??? My bathroom colors are chocolate brown, and light blue, and I thought that adding a little brown bow to the top was the perfect touch!

I am planning on getting a pretty hook to hang it on, probably from Anthropologie to add a more finished looking touch to it.

Now, I finally have a place to hang all my jewelry, and even some hair accessories!  This baby totally beats just dropping them on the bathroom counter.  I couldn't love it any more!

Ahhh, I love love love it!! <3  I hope you guys do too!! Can't wait to hear what you think! :)
