The glue will take another 24 hours or so to fully cure, but at this point I have a functional, hanging, necklace board. This is so much nicer than having my necklaces hang off the corner of my mirror. Besides getting tangled it just looked janky. SO. Photos, ho!

This is right after I glued on the glass tiles and screwed in all those doggone hooks. Might I recommend pliers? They will save your fingers, big time. Hooks are about 1 inch apart.

All hung up! As you can see, there is definitely room to grow my collection.

I like these photos better because it really highlights the reddish undertones in the stain. I absolutely love this kind of colour... I don't know if you can tell from the photos, but the stain is almost the same colour as the jewelery box that I bought years ago.

What a functional idea... and it must be bigger than it seems if those hooks are 1 inch apart. Was it hard to drill all the holes? That was the sticking point when I thought about this kind of project.

I too like that red component to the stain. It really adds a lot to the overall effect.

Is the glass decorative or does it serve some sort of counter-weighting purpose or something I haven't guessed at?

ASlhfaldkjf, I must have one! O_O Thanks for the accidental inspiration. XD

This is gorgeous. Where did you get those glass tiles? I've never seen anything like them before and they're GORGEOUS. I love the dark stain. I've always been a sucker for dark wood. ^_^ VERY well done.

By the way, well done on those hooks. O_o Even with half-dead hands they're very even.

Very pretty! Your solution is much more elegant than my corkboard + push pins.
