Hanging those Earrings

There are so many great ideas for jewelry holders out there.  I finally decided I needed to have one.  My earrings have been in a little dish for the past, um, 8 years.  Yeah, I know.  Not the best idea.  So I dug out a plain frame that I had with my craft supplies, some 22-gauge wire, and some paint.  
Pretty simple.  Adds a little beauty to my boring bathroom.  I like it.  It's nice.
 I painted a couple coats of green (I know, the pics aren't great).  Then, I sanded down my corners and edges.  I finished it with a coat of watered-down brown paint.  
 I then just doubled up my wire.  Created some loops different sizes and directions.  Then I stapled the wire to the back of the frame. 
Voila.  Earrings hung.  No more searching for the match.  Beautiful.
