On one of my frequent visits to Cupcakes and Cashmere, I read this post with the greatest idea for hanging sunglasses. This is genius, and I can talk because if you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a sun-glass addict and for that same reason, my not-so-shabby-but-still-modest collection gets lost around the house, in my bags, in a random drawer, on the dining-room table, behind the couch. You would find sunglasses hanging in any room I have access too, shower included.
Clearly, I stole the idea and will show you step-by-step how I made my own simpler version. Here’s what you’ll need to make something similar:
- a 12 x 16 frame. Although not as fancy as Emily’s, mine cost $2 at a thrift store.
- steel wire from an art supplies store.
- staple gun
It was black but became grey after a couple of Martha Stewart Cumulus Cloud coats. If needed, you’re welcome to use a tape measure and pencil to mark were the wires should go, I didn’t use one and it looks pretty straight. Get ready to staple two pieces of wire across the frame and that’s where the shades will hang. Allow a little over and inch space between the frame and the top wire (otherwise it will look great but it won’t let you remove the shades easily).
Staple the wire a couple of times on one side of the frame. Then fold the left over wire…
