I was so sick of not having a functional storage space for my sunglasses, so I decided to just make my own. Keeping true to the theme of my room I knew I wanted something with a vintage feel. Not exactly sure how this idea came to me but it was a total "A-ha!" moment! If anyone else out there has a strange, sick addiction to sunglasses, this is an awesome way to keep them organized!
What you'll need:
Scissors, Thick elastic band (found at any sewing store), Staple gun, Vintage looking frame of your choice, Tape Measure, Pencil or marker, and lots and lots of sunglasses
Start by removing the staples holding the original artwork in place. Obviously, this step can be skipped if you have an empty frame.
Decide where you want your first row. I chose to do mine quite close to the top. Staple down on one side using as many staples as you need to make it feel secure. I used from 2-3 on each one. Pull the elastic tight across to the other side. You want to do quite tight, but not tight enough that you will be losing the shape of the elastic.
Once your first row is complete, measure down to decide where your next row will be. I decided on 8 inches. Measure down on both sides, and repeat the previous steps to secure another row. Continue down until you reach near the end of your frame.
Find the right wall and make sure it's level. And vola, there you have it. The last step is the most fun: Add your sunglasses!!
