Unique Jewelry Display Project

I've been searching the internet and stores for a way to store my jewelry. I don't have a lot, and much of it is costume jewelry (primarily necklaces and bracelets), but I have been struggling to find a way to store and display my jewelry in my huge bathroom that has minimal storage space.

My jewelry needs a home.

Here is what I came up with. I purchased a basswood board at Joann Fabrics for $9.99 (but I had a 40% off coupon, so I got the board for $5), a tube of acrylic paint (burnt umber is the color I picked), clear spray paint, various cabinet hardware from Lowe's and Home Depot, an easel from Pier One and my drill bits and screw gun.


I painted the wood board using the burnt umber acrylic paint and then used a crumpled up piece of newspaper to pat the board while the paint was wet. This created a textured look. When the paint was dry, I sprayed the wood with clear spray paint to seal the color and provide a protective coat.


I then planned my design by arranging the cabinet knobs on the board. It took a few tries, and I am glad I had my jewelry on hand to know which items I wanted to display.

I placed the board on the easel, hung my jewelry and my DIY Jewelry Display Project was done!


I am glad that Rob does not even read my blog, so I know he won't read yours. I have been begging him to buy me a jewelry box for abut 3 years. I found this one at Costco for $60 that has these great hooks that leave plenty of room to hang necklaces. I really do need one because I always have to untangle mine when I want to wear them. He would be clipping Michaels coupons if he knew he could get out of it for ten bucks.
