This little DIY is one of those things that I totally created on the fly - no prior planning at all.

I was working on #projectkidsbathroom (haha, its been soooooo long since I gave a bathroom update ...oops) and had these antlers I wanted to hang. Originally I was thinking they would be part of the gallery wall, but then I got an idea!


What if I could turn the antlers into functional storage?



I grabbed some chicken wire, the antlers and started wrapping the chicken wire loosely around the antlers, twisting the ends in on themselves to prevent getting poked. I sort of squished and pulled the chicken wire to mimic the shape of the antler base, leaving room between the two. Basically, I didn't want the chicken wire tight against it.


I tried hanging it on the wall using the chicken wire, but it was really unstable. I showed my husband what I wanted to do and he laughed at me came to my rescue! He found a scrap piece of reclaimed wood and screwed the antlers to it (good thing I have him!)

Then we hung the whole thing up on the wall inside of a vintage frame I had spray painted.
(ignore the nail holes...)


Once it was hung, I started clipping on a few of my daughters flower hair accessories...


By leaving the chicken wire loose, I could easily take the flowers on and off as she wanted to wear them.

Brilliant!

I can't get over how cute it looks!
Storage that doesn't look like storage!


You could easily hang necklaces or hair bands on it too!

I put this fun GIF together for fun so you see how it works!




Here's how it looks in the space...


I can't wait to show you the rest of the bathroom! (...I know, I know...but I really mean it this time!)
