Run a cutter through lace & create this shabby chic idea

Once you pick just the right outfit for the day or your date night, it’s time to pick your jewelry. But if you’re like many people, your earrings sit in a tray, drawer or dish, and finding the pair you want is nearly impossible. If you find yourself in this situation, take heart. With a spare picture frame, some lace and a little basic crafting know-how, you can create an elegant solution to your earring storage headache. 
First developed in Europe, lace has been a sought-after material for centuries as a symbol of femininity and grace. For this project, choose lace that has tight webbing if you have a sizable collection of earrings to hang. For a modern, bohemian look, try a vintage picture frame and looser lacework.

2. Paint the back of the picture frame with the chalk paint. Remove the gloves.
3. While the paint is drying, measure the back of the picture frame.
4. Put a piece of lace on the cutting mat, and use the ruler and a rotary cutter to trim the lace down to the same dimensions as the back of the picture frame.
5. Once the paint is dry, apply a line of glue at the top of the painted side of the back of the frame.
6. Press the top of the lace into the glue. 
7. Apply additional lines of glue along the other sides of the painted back of the frame, and press the edges of the lace to those as well.
