I’m in the process of redoing my daughter’s room. She’s 10 now and thinks her room shouldn’t be pink anymore. So after LOTS and I’m talking LOTS of shopping and looking online for a comforter we finally found what she wanted. So this Jewelry Holder is the first thing I’ve made to decorate her room with. And I’m completely in love with it!
I saw a yellow and gray jewelry holder at Hobby Lobby but it definitely wouldn’t match. So I was on the lookout. I finally found a wooden silverware organizer at a yard sale for $.50. Talk about luck! It’s super easy and here’s how I did it.
Wooden Silverware Organizer
Hooks (I got these at Michaels)
Paint & Paintbrush
Start by painting the wooden silverware organizer. I chose gray because we had planned on hanging it on a blue wall. You don’t have to worry much about the bottom since you will be putting scrapbook paper over it. But make sure to cover the front edge and all sides well. While it’s drying cut your scrapbook paper to fit inside each cubby hole.
Once its dry, it’s time to get out the mod podge.
Using a foam brush, I applied a thin layer to the bottom and stuck the paper on it. I have a thing about the paper bubbling up, so I apply thin layers and let it dry in between. Then I applied 2 thin layers to the top of the paper.
Once that’s dry, the last step is the hooks. I found these at Michael’s 20 for $2.99 in the framing section. They had them at Hobby Lobby as well but they were more expensive. I hammered them in a little to start and then screwed them in enough to hold. Make sure not to go all the way through the wood. Mine would have screwed quite a bit farther than what was necessary. Then you’ll have a hole all the way through. Please be careful!
Now it’s ready for your jewelry. My daughter loves it! And I’m on the lookout for more of these at yard sales!
