Shabby chic jewelry organizer DIY

Posted on Jan 20, 2013 by in Tutorials and DIY |

My dear friend, Sophia, complained to me that her fine jewelry chains tangled in a big box, and a million little boxes do not fit her dresser drawers. Besides, she forgets about her jewelry and wears any pair of earrings day after day. She browsed the internet for ideas, told me about her favorite jewelry storing solution and asked me to make this amazing thing.

So… here it is! Shabby chic wall-hanged jewelry organizer for Sophia!

First of all, I buy simple wooden board and found three unfinished wooden frames from IKEA store in my work-room. Here are my general instructions how to make the organizer.

For the next few steps you can unleash the imagination! You may use textile, lace, craft paper or… nothing for decorate the organizer. I took some pieces of fabric with cute flower embroidery and cut four rectangles with long sides equal in length to long sides of the frame and two rectangles with long sides equal in length to short sides of the frame.

The third frame I used just as photo frame, I placed my daughter’s photo in! Surely, Sophia will prefer a photo of her baby-girl.

If you want to have a place for things that don’t hang right on such organizer, you can use any wooden tray instead of board. The sides of tray provide place for sitting little boxes for rings, pendants, studs or scarf rings.
