28 Day Organizing Challenge: Before Pictures

Remember the Great Space Clean-Up of 2009?  Yeah, that didn’t work out so well.  There was a narrow band of time that showed improvement, followed by a relapse to possibly greater depths.  I’m trying again, this time with a shorter time window, the possibility of prizes, and the knowledge that others just like me are tackling their own spaces, small and large.  I’ve joined Org Junkie’s 28 Day Organizing Challenge.  Here are the Before pictures of my sewing room.  (If you want to see a trash pile in more detail, click on a picture for a bigger version.)

Jewelry display frame

I made a jewelry frame to hold my small collection of earrings and necklaces in the bathroom, using a project from One-Yard Wonders as inspiration.  Oh, I just realized I should have taken a Before picture of my jewelry to show the improvement.  It used to be a piece of ribbon stuck to the wall with thumbtacks in assorted colors, and before that they usually just lay in a pile on the counter.

I bought a white frame for $1.50 at the Goodwill 50% Off Saturday yesterday then painted it the same color I did the dining chairs last month.  I removed the glass, then covered the mat with a layer of batting and simple sea foam green fabric (the same as the back of napkins I made a couple weeks ago) using the same technique as my quickie swap party jewelry board.

Any suggestions on how to reuse the glass I removed from the frame?
