Driftwood Jewelry Storage

While attempting to break some old rusty nails that I found (I wanted to shorten them for another project), I ended up bending them instead....light bulb moment....hooks!


Hmmm, now, what to put them on....I have a collection of driftwood that I've picked up whenever we take walks around the lake near our house. 


So I hammered several of them into the wood, and tied on a little twine...crazy, but I liked it.


I need to change the way it's hung on the wall so it won't slide to one side when something is placed on one of the hooks.


It was in my booth for about a month (see below), but obviously, it didn't sell...but it seems like there's more of a demand for this type of thing on Etsy.

While listing it on Etsy, it occurred to me that this would be a great place to hang jewelry or scarves from...or maybe belts or hats.  I put a couple coats of poly over the nails so the rust wouldn't rub off on anything.

 
Thanks for stopping by - hope you're enjoying the holiday season.  We finally put up our tree yesterday - and it's still standing.   It has suffered several run-ins with the Cozy Coupe, and several of the (plastic) ornaments have been ripped from the limbs to be used as projectiles (I tied them onto the tree)...but everyone still has all of their eyes...so far.

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday season.

I love the simplicity and character. Weathered wood, a rusty element(s) and twine . . . these are a few of my favorite things . . .
