You only need some craft wood and a few other supplies.
I'm always looking for simply ways to display my small necklace collection so I can see all of them at once and get them down easily. I came up with this simple, modern rack with pops of ombre color on the pegs as a solution. You only need some craft wood and a few other supplies.

I appreciate the simplicity of the construction. Also, the colors make it feel very modern.. Do you utilize the ledge that it creates for earring storage?

Thanks! I mostly use the ledge for brooch storage and maybe a photo here and there. I change it out a lot!
