I am a huge fan of Pinterest, so when I came across this DIY project to store your jewelry I decided I had to try it myself. I have a jewelry armoire that ideally should be big enough to store all my jewelry, but honestly I have run out of space. Plus, I have a lot of long necklaces that just wouldn’t fit right. It’s frustrating when they are tangled up in a ball because they are just too long. So this DIY jewelry organizer project has now allowed me to store all of my special and more expensive jewelry in my armoire and organize all of my costume jewelry in this “organizer” on my closet wall.
So while at the store I picked up these bamboo cutlery trays for $7 each, a pack of hooks for $3 and a can of white spray paint for $3.
First, my husband helped out by spraying them white. It took a few coats to get them white! Then, we screwed holes in the appropriate spots and started screwing in the hooks. It was important to screw the holes first, as bamboo is a very hard wood and can crack easily. Once all the hooks were in, we were ready to hang them on my wall and begin to organize.
Here are a few pictures of the process in making my DIY jewelry organizer…Enjoy!
