Hang Up The Sunnies.

For those of us who wear sunglasses year round and just see them pile up as we continue to purchase new ones, I have a solution for us all.
I was randomly surfing through blogs and Emily the blogger of Cupcakes and Cashmere had an amazing, easy, and creative idea to stylishly store your sunnies. 

 In her own words:
"I have quite a few sunglasses, but I can never keep track of them since they’re always strewn about in random spots throughout my place. Yesterday I created a more streamlined solution, while still adhering to the minimalist vibe of my bedroom. I used an extra frame from a recent project (that’s painted the same color as my wall) and used it to corral all of my eyewear. It took only a few minutes to complete, and the entire project cost $15 (vintage frame $7, paint $4, hooks $1.50, wire $2.50). Here’s how I did it:......." 
{Figure out the general layout – I liked four frames per wire}
  {Tools: steel wire, screw eyes, tape measure, ice pick, scissors, pencil}

 {Measure where to make the first hole and mark with the pencil}

 {Use the ice pick to create a small hole}

 {Twist the screw eye into the hole until it’s in place}

  {Secure the wire by twisting around the screw eye}

  {Pull the wire so that it’s very taut and secure on the other end}

  {Hang sunglasses and display}

Creative, Stylish and Easy!
