Introduction: DIY Jewelry Organizer (Wall Mount)

My wife wanted a way to organize all of her necklaces. I didn't want to spend any money... Here's the result.

Step 1: Old Hinges

We had these old hinges left over from our kitchen remodel. They matched the pallet wood feel nicely.

Step 2: Separate Pallet Slats.

We used a reciprocating saw to cut through the nails. We made sure to use a heat treated pallet, and removed all the small nails before moving on.

Step 3: Accent Paint.

Paint a few random slats to add color and variety. We painted lightly to give it a "distressed' look.

Step 4: Chevron Pattern.

We laid out the pallet wood back in what was supposed to be a "chevron" pattern. It ended up not being right, but still looked pretty cool.

Step 5: Apply Backer Board.

We cheated a bit and used 1/8" ply backer board to hold the pattern in place.

Step 6: Glue in the Back.

I cut a rabbet on the table saw to hold the back of our cabinet in place.

Step 7: Build Front Door.

I mitered the corners of some pallet slats and added chicken wire to make the front door.

Step 8: Sand and Finish.

We were going to stain the cabinet gray but it didn't look good. We had an old can of spray on clear coat to finish it.

Step 9: Add Hooks.

We used hard cut masonry nails as the hooks for her necklaces. Unfortunately they were a little long, so I had to cut each one of them down with the sawzall.

Step 10: Finished Product!

She was thrilled with the finished product. We mounted it on the wall and filled it up. A nice addition to our hallway between the bedroom and bathroom.

I love the painted "inlay" type look! I'll need to use this for future projects.
