Jewelry Organizer

I'm reposting this from last summer so I can share it with the Weekend Wrap Up Party at Tatertots and Jello!  It's also one of my favorite DIY projects I have done because it's been so useful.

I spotted this idea in a DIY magazine and was in love!  It was so easy, fairly cheap, and totally useful!  I made one for myself, and then my mom wanted one too.  She and my dad are spending their retirement in an RV, and she needed something for her jewelry! 

Here's mine:

And here's how I made my mom's:

1.  Grab a board!  I made mine with a piece of scrap wood I found in my basement.  I made my mom's using a piece of wood I picked up at AC Moore for a couple bucks.

2.  Choose your handles.  I got mine at Target and Lowe's.

3.  Paint your board.  I used a coat of white paint followed by a coat of pearlish paint.

4.  Lay out your pieces.

5.  Measure and mark before you drill!

6. For mine, I stapled a piece of ribbon as a hanger. For my mom's, I found an old wooden hanger and drilled that into the top so she could hang it in the RV closet.

7.  Drill your holes and attach your handles.

8.  Hang your jewelry!


  1. Thank You!! I can hardly wait to hang my jewelry...that will mean I am officially retired!!! Mine is beautiful and perfect for my collection!

  2. This is so cute! I pinned it in my pinterest. I am visiting from TT&J linky party. Come and say hi I love visitors also I am doing an awesome giveaway next week so check back soon.
