Do you ever create a project that is functional and pretty, and all of the building supplies came from the hardware store? Those are my favorite kind! And that’s why I love this DIY Jewelry Organizer so much. I love how it creates a beautiful, useful piece with items that weren’t necessarily meant for beauty or this function.
I shared the Home Depot’s upcoming DIH Workshop with you all last week and I’m here today to share my version of this Mother’s Day Jewelry Organizer. Let’s take a look at the inspirational version:
How cute is this idea? So adorable, huh? And super simple to make, too! It’d be a great gift for a friend or mom in your life. 😊
And guess what?!
You can actually make your own organizer at The Home Depot’s free Do-It-Herself Workshop on Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 6:30 pm – 8! You can register —>>>RIGHT HERE.<<<—
The workshop itself is free, but you will want to purchase your supplies to make one of your own. The materials are less than $30, so totally affordable!
You will get instructions on how to make the jewelry hanger, but then you can customize it however you want! (At the end of this post, there are a ton of links to show you how all of the other bloggers customized their organizers, so be sure to check them out for more inspiration!)
It’s like girls night with power tools. That’s the kind of girls night I want to have. 😋
The Home Depot offers workshops at all of their locations for do-it-yourselfers of all ages and experience levels. There are three types of Workshops offered:

I was excited when The Home Depot approached me about participating in their Do it Herself Workshops again. I shared a project from their #DIHWorkshop last year when I built this Snowman Door Hanger. It was so cute and easy to build. I just knew I’d love any project they proposed.
I love that these workshops help women learn how to take their dreams and build them themselves!
So, I took the inspiration above and changed a few things to make them my own! Here’s how it turned out:
I, of course, wanted turquoise knobs to hang my necklaces on. And I changed the corners to be mitered corners. The instructions tell you to add the brackets to the back of the frame, but since I was doing mitered corners, I thought they’d look good in the front, giving it a little industrial vibe.
I changed out the Union Jack aluminum sheet for a Mosaic metal sheet. It fits my style more, along with the rustic light blue finish on the frame. It’s hard to tell in the pictures that it’s light blue, but but it is. 😊
I stained the frame first and then brushed on a thin layer of paint to give it a more rustic finish.
It’s just so pretty! I loved mine so much that I’m keeping it for myself, although I may very well make some for gifts since they ARE so easy to make!
Tools Needed for a DIY Jewelry Organizer

How to Build a DIY Jewelry Organizer
Step 1. Cut your 1 x 4 boards to the height and width of your metal sheet. Keeping the inside edge of your boards a half an inch to an inch smaller then the outer edges of your metal sheet.
