DIY Jewelry Organizer

I don't know about you guys, but I have way too much jewelry and almost no where to put it! It's not that I wear jewelry a lot. I just can't help myself when I see a beautiful necklace. And don't even get me started on buy 1, get 1 sales! I like to tell myself I'm building up a nice collection for when I become a teacher and have to dress nice. :)

Because of this collection I've accumulated, I needed a place to put them. More importantly though, I needed some organization to the madness! So, inspired by a pin I saw almost a year ago of a typeset tray turned into a jewelry organizer, I went on the hunt for my own to makeover!

I don't have a lot of wall space in my one bedroom apartment, so I was trying to figure out where I was going to but a big typeset tray! Luckily though, I found a smaller one that was perfect! It was already stained a lovely dark brown so all it needed was a new knob up top and some hooks!

I added some hooks to the bottom to hang necklaces and my watch on! They were kind of a pain to screw in, so my sweet boyfriend helped me out. I believe he tapped them gently with a hammer to get them started and then screwed them in the rest of the way by hand.

He then added a few hooks to the back piece of wood the same way to hang my dangly earrings on. I don't have a lot of dangly earrings so the other little cubbies I just set my studs and rings in.

After all the hooks are in, I added a simple blue knob that I got from Hobby Lobby for $1.50! Score!

And hanging directly above it is my sunflower painting that I painted with my cousin when she came to visit me for Spring Break this year! We went to Spirited Art, a painting studio where they teach you step-by-step how to paint their pictures! It was so much fun and I love how mine (and hers!) turned out so I had to show it off!

And you can see on the side, I have a bunch of my scarves hung up on my wall too. Let's just say that I may have a problem with scarves too. ;)

I love that all of my jewelry is in one place now instead of sitting tangled on my dresser or hung on doorknobs of every door! I now know where everything is and because of that, I wear my jewelry more often!

I would love to know how you guys have your jewelry organized! Especially bracelets, cause I'm still working on that one! Let me know in the comments below!
