Finally Finished

Remember when I told y'all that I was going to make a necklace display out of an old shutter?

Well, I found the shutter nearly two months ago 

And this weekend after lots of scrubbing, I finally completed it.

Good grief, that is a quality photo if I've ever seen one.
Anyways, that is it, now I just have to decide how to hang it on the wall.

I started by marking where I wanted the knobs to go with chalk. 
Then used almost the widest drill bit I could find.

Power tools have a way of making me feel in total control of my life.

I've been collecting these for two years now. 

But this one is hands down my absolute favorite.

Originally I wanted to paint it white but decided that I liked the chipped, aged look. Besides, it's an antique.

I chose 10 of the 15-ish and believe me, it was H.A.R.D. to decide.

What do you think?!
