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.
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?!
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!
