Organise your earrings

07 Jun 2018

Need somewhere to display your beautiful statement earrings? Take a look at this clever DIY earring stand.

You will need:

  • Piece of plywood and short timber battens for base
  • Drill
  • Resene testpot brushes
  • Resene Colorwood Whitewash
  • Resene testpots in Resene Paradise and Resene Coral Tree
  • Resene Paint Effects medium

Step one. Take the plywood piece and mark out where you’d like to place your earrings. Drill the holes.

Step two. Apply two layers of Resene Colorwood Whitewash to the plywood and battens.

Step three. Using Resene Paint Effects medium, mix with the Resene testpot colours to create a wash effect over the plywood piece. Leave to dry.

Step four. Glue the battens to the bottom of the ply with liquid nails and leave to dry.

Step five. Place your earrings. As your earring collection grows, add more drill holes.
