Sunglasses Solution

Okay. I have had this dilemma for 6 years now (that is how long I have been married).  There are sun glasses and car keys sitting on top of our microwave... along with lots of other junk. See?

Enough of that!

Here was my solution.

Perdy, aint it?




How I did it.
Purchased this rectangular frame at Michael's on clearance for $9.99!
Removed the class and matte.
Cut fabric (that matches my drapery) to size.
Cut a tube and threaded elastic inside to hold the glasses snug.
Stitched the elastic tube every 2 inches across.
I Sprayed Elmer's craft bond spray adhesive to the frame's inside board and fixed the fabric to it.
Once it was dry I put it inside the frame. 
Applied Command Valcro Strips to the back side of the frame - for secure removal of glasses and keys.


Voila!


Initially it was for sun glasses but I decided that by tucking the key fab in the elastic it works well for them too!


I am tickled about it!
What do you think. Would these sell or what?

ADORABLE!! Love that solution! I've created all sorts of spots where things belong, but in 18 years haven't managed to get hubby to put stuff in said designated spots. Sigh. Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog & commenting the other week. I reference my mom binder as needed - sometimes daily for answer keys or lesson plans, but the rest is just for occasional reference. I keep attendance on the computer (homeschooltracker.com - the free version), but at the end of each year I print it & save it as required by our state law.
