I’m always looking for new ways to display my jewelry and earrings have always been a challenge for me. Many times I just leave them in a silver bowl on my table but recently I thought it might be better if customers could actually see the earrings without rummaging through a whole bowl of them.
Here are the supplies I used for earring display DIY:
- wood board (I was in a hurry and bought wood already cut down and sanded.)
- Minwax Express Color, Walnut
- plastic cup
- stain brush
- L hooks (not in photo)
- Dremel drill (not in photo)
I started off by squirting a little of the walnut stain in a plastic cup and watering it down. It was probably about half stain, half water. I didn’t measure it. That’s one of the things I love about this water-based stain! I stirred it up with my brush.BTW, I was a little upset when I went into our Lowe’s a few months ago and saw the Express Stains in the clearance section. I thought they were being discontinued. But I checked with the Minwax rep at the Snap Conference and she said it was just Lowe’s that wasn’t carrying it anymore. Whew…. Didn’t want to loose my favorite stain! (No, this post is NOT sponsored by Minwax. Although I would love to write one for them. Hint, hint… just in case anyone from Minwax reads this.)
Then I brushed the thinned stain onto the board, let it set for just a minute or so, and wiped it off with a rag.
Before drilling any holes I laid out my earring cards to see how they would best fit. I marked the hole placement with a pencil, drilled a starter hole with my Dremel, and screwed in these L hooks.
I got mine in a box of assorted screws and hooks that I bought at OSH. I wanted the cup hooks for my crate necklace display and these were leftovers.
You’ll see these displays when I set up at Paris Flea Market, Treasure Island Flea, and the Roses and Rust Vintage Market.
