Jewelry Organizer!


Remember my Vanity from my last post?? I want to talk about my Jewelry Organizer!


I found the idea for this at On My Side of the Room.

I originally had squares of cork to make a bullitein board hanging up with pushpins holding my necklaces and earrings. It wasn't quite cutting it. I had it that way for a while....but sometimes pins would fall out because the cork wasn't really thick and I was always dropping jewelry...and ruining some!
So when I saw that idea....I had to make it ASAP!

So again, I went to Lowes, but this time with my Mom, and found a nice square piece of wood, got one dowel, and a TON of hooks. I screwed all the hooks in while watching TV that night...let me tell you, my wrist was feeling it! I think I used about 40 hooks. Then I spray painted it black. I also decided to hot glue some white ribbon around the edges to add a little something.

I LOVE IT! I think I may need to make another! ;-P


I've...kinda got a lot of jewelry.


Here are the dowels. I used them to hang some of my earrings. 
Both dowels are the same length...then slide easily over the hooks, so the top one was pushed to one side more than the bottom, and I didn't notice when I took the photo. Oops...



A closer view of the hooks. The hooks were gold. I spray painted everything black, so it blended in.
I also put some picture hangers on the back to make it easier to hang.

Hi Fallen-
My name is Janera Jepson and I host the new Wednesday meme Wednesday Wickedness ( Don't let the name throw you. We are a family oriented meme that's similar to Linda's Random Dozen. We base our questions each week on quotes from someone famous. This week is Frank Sinatra. Since Linda is taking time off I thought I'd invite you to play during the hiatus. We always post on Tuesdays (we're up now!) so players can play on either day. We hope that you will join us! :)
