Picture frame jewelry display

I have mentioned before that I am NOT a crafty person. I have crafting ADD and often start a craft, get bored or realize it is above my technical abilities, then I abandon the craft. You should see my storage closet, it's a crafting graveyard. 

Knowing this about myself, I have made a promise to only undertake projects that I know I will complete. Over Christmas break I bought 3 skeins of yarn and crocheted one scarf. I finished it in a day, after not having crocheted in 15 years. It was a terrible end product, but I finished it. The creative bug bit me again last week, so I decided to approach a project I've seen on Pinterest and around the blogosphere. 

I bought an ugly framed print from Goodwill for $13 {what happened to the GW being cheap?}, a can of light turquoise spray paint, some organza ribbon, and set up my supplies on my patio. 
I took the the back, print and glass out of the frame, then prepared to spray it down. I didn't sand, prime, or do anything to prepare the frame because I'm lazy like that. 
I haphazardly sprayed my frame, giving it a minute to set before attacking with a second coat.
 I also spray painted a wooden letter H just for fun.
 Finished product
I then used my awesome handy-dandy staple gun to fix my ribbon across the frame.
 My previous jewelry display was cork squares and pushpins. Effective, but jumbled and not pretty.
 So I re-purposed the squares to create a back for my frame that I can poke pins into.
Ta-da!
 Some up close of my fave pieces :)
 This 'lovely' necklace is from Forever 21, and I adore it! My favorite color and one of my favorite words!
 This flower cocktail necklace is from my grandma, she wore it in the 60's!
I am quite impressed with myself for having gotten through a whole craft project! I'm thankful it was relatively easy project. Definitely something for everyone to try out if they have an old frame and some spray paint to play with.
