The Ultimate DIY Accessory Organizer
I found this great old window frame for $10 at an antique store, but you can use any type of empty frame. You could even paint it a fun color or distress it to give it some character. I picked up a 2’ x 5’ piece of chicken wire (also called poultry fence) at Home Depot on my way home.
I laid my frame down and lined up the chicken wire to the back of the frame. I then trimmed the chicken wire to line up with the back of the frame.
After the chicken wire was trimmed to size, I just took my staple gun and started stapling away! I love my staple gun!
And that’s it! A cheap project that will take you about 20 minutes to complete. You can use your new board in your office to pin up important notes and cards OR you can use it to organize your favorite accessories.
Hope this helps you to get organized in the new year! What other organization tips do you have? Share them in the comments below.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
