You'll want to go to the hardware store and pick up the two dowels and board. If the store offers wood cutting let them know what sizes you need or you can buy a hand saw and miter box to cut at home. I picked out oak wood because it's has a beautiful natural grain but it is really hard to drill and cut.
You'll want to go ahead and stain your wood dowels and board using the foam brush; let dry. Then take your masking or painters tape and tape out a zig zag or another pattern on the wood base.
Take the other foam brush and paint over the top of the board and let dry. It took me about two coats of white to get the brightness I wanted.
Now here comes the math and measurement part.
You'll want to mark where you'll drill the holes in the dowels and where on the board you'll place them. You'll need to mark both entries and make sure everything lines up, it's kind of like doing a dry standing of what it's going to look like. I was in such a rush to get it done and didn't do as great of a job marking and measuring which made it take much longer to finish.
Once you finished this take your drill bit and drill the holes for your screws. Make sure you don't make it too big or too small for the wood screws.
I found it easier to start with the base board and screw the 13" dowels into place. Then take the center piece and screw in each side.
If you want a glossy finish use the clear gloss spray and let dry.
There you have it! Your own jewelry display where you can show case your necklaces and jewelry.
Also I'm trying to save up for this Christmas Craft Show so I can buy supplies for jewelry and packaging. I had a enough to kind of kick start buying supplies for holiday pieces and packaging but I still need to purchase a few more items to make necklaces and also boxes to put jewelry in for customers. With that said all proceeds from Craft'n Bettie will go to help my efforts :)
