My jewelry collection had long ago grown too large for my little jewelry box to handle and I was tired of rummaging through the tangled mess of necklaces, bracelets, and rings every time I wanted something to wear.
I actually made this organizer just after I decided to move to a new house and I declared that it was time to leave my unorganized life behind! (or at least try to anyway). So a couple weeks before I started packing the house up, I whipped this project out one afternoon…no more tangled messes!
- Chop saw (to cut 1x1s)
- Staple & Nail Gun (You’ll need 1/2in long finishing staples & 1 1/4in long finishing nails)
- Skill saw or table saw (to cut pegboard)
- Carpenter’s Square
- Four 1x1s at 9 1/4in in length
- Four 1x1s at 3ft in length
- One sheet of pegboard 1ft x 3ft in size
- Paint brush with white paint (I used acrylic paint bought at the craft store)
- My easy DIY old wood stain
- A few pegboard multi-tool racks to hang your jewelry (You can also buy them at the hardware store)
- Picture hook (for hanging organizer onto wall) Honestly I just used a nail in the wall and the organizer hung just fine)
(When cutting your pegboard, make sure there will be 10 holes going across the width after the side 1x1s are added, for the multi-tool racks to fit)
Make a frame by nailing together the two 3ft 1x1s and the two 9 1/4in 1x1s
I did this by ‘sandwiching’ the smaller 1x1s in-between the longer ones
Make a second frame
Then I stained the frames with my easy DIY wood stain (You can do this before or after you finish the project)
Gather the pegboard, place it on top of one of the frames and staple together
Now place the other frame on top of the pegboard and nail together.
Dry brush the frame with white paint. Dry brushing is simply using a ‘dry brush’ to apply paint. Only dip the tip of the brush in the paint and then dab off the excess before painting, as you want it to be slightly dry when applying the paint. This gives the wood an old, aged ‘whitewash’ look.
Now hang on your wall and organize that jewelry!
