I'm Julie, a feisty, but rather shy redhead from New York, who moved to the Midwest to follow my dreams (and the love of my life). I'm passionate about decorating our home with my own unique affordable DIY style which is a mix of eclectic, contemporary, traditional, with a splash of country. I don't follow the crowd, but trust my gut instead. I hope to inspire you to try some of my ideas. I also love to cook and share my easy recipes. My family begs me to make my homemade meatballs and pizza. I hope you will try them and hang out with me for a while or subscribe to my e-mail letter here:

DIY Eye Glass Holder

“I can’t find my glasses.”

I’ve said it, you’ve said it, and my hubby has certainly said it.

Not anymore.

Merry Christmas Pop!

Yes…I call my hubby Pop, and this was one of his Christmas gifts.

Rick had Lasik surgery a couple years ago so he only needs reading glasses now.

He has accumulated too many several pairs.

He leaves them all over the house, but yet can’t find them anywhere.

Then he buys more.

I needed to put an end to the madness people!!

How could we store his glasses in one place with easy access.

Then I thought of sun visor clips.

Incase your not familiar with these…they clip on your car’s sun visor and hold your glasses.

I love them.

While we were Christmas shopping, I bought 3 packs of 2.

Rick was with me, but he knew better than to ask what I was up to.

Then, I began to think of what I could attach them to.

I bought this Pine Wood Board for $6.48 months ago at Home Depot on a whim because I knew I could use it somewhere.

It was perfect.

So…I stained it.

Then I polyurethaned it.

Then I had to figure out how to get the clips on the board.

Screwing in the screw for a cool Eye Glass Holder

If you look closely below, you will see the hole where the screw fit.

I also should note that the curved wire part came off easily with a little maneuvering.

That way, it would lay flat.

After I attached the clips where I wanted them, I knew it needed some personalization.

Stencils worked easily.

Just a little paint and it was finished.

Easy StencilingI hid it under my bed.

Almost forgot about it with our crazy power outage on Christmas.

He loved it.

We hung it right over his little catch-all in our bedroom.
