The week is flying by! And if you caught my last post, you know I’m shopping the “World’s Longest Yardsale” with GMC and some other bloggers.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can catch up here. :)
Today my “Get Your DIY On” friends and I are sharing “storage ideas”.
I’m sharing this old, messy “jewelry organizer”…..
Eeek! I really shared that. ;o
But only with a big ole “BEFORE” slapped across it!
Yep. It didn’t start out that way….but that’s how it ended up!
But have no fear…this is what it looks like now…..
Much better. :)
I pulled it down from the wall, sprayed the frame gold and bought a few little accessories ….for my accessories. ;)
You can find the items above here: (I’ve included some affiliate links so you can find the exact products I used. See my disclosure here.)
~Vanity Organizer (it’s from Target but couldn’t find it on their site)
Any size corkboard will work
Gold spray paint (or whichever color you like)
I spray painted everything to match the gold frame.
Quick and easy way to paint nail/screw heads and things like this.
Just push them down into cardboard…or left over spaghetti and oj cartons! ;)
(the hook pins look gold but are a bronze color so needed paint too)
For the center area, I created this graphic/printable for the quote….

Personal use only, please. (the downloadable copy won’t have my watermark on it)
Now here’s some full disclosure for you guys. Because sometimes things don’t always work out like they are supposed to! ;)
I originally wanted the gold glittery letters to be on the outside of the glass in the frame.
BUT I ended up using vinyl from another company and I could not get it to stick to the transfer paper.
So, basically it wanted to stay stuck to the backing paper it came on! Ugh.
The only thing I could do at this point was buy more vinyl and try again …. or just leave it on the white backing paper and frame it up! ;)
So that’s what I did.
Can you see it’s a little shiny?? Not ideal but I was certainly over messing with it.
The frame came from the dollar store, by the way. It also got gold paint.
I thought it might be nice to have somewhere on this board to put my watch or cuff style bracelets.
This clear plexiglass container worked out perfectly.
I lined it with a thin piece of felt for cushion. (cut to fit)
To attach it, I drilled holes in the container and into the board….
I then sprayed the heads of 2 bolts gold and attached it to the board.
Very sturdy and everything is in one spot. Easy to see and super organized!
The rings are on clear push pins.
I love the hooks at the bottom for the bracelets.
It used to live inside my closet/dressing area but I decided to move it right out into my bedroom instead.
There’s a little more room plus I have my big floor mirror (to the right of it) I can use as I’m putting an outfit and jewelry together.
If I didn’t have a mirror closeby, I though it would also be nice to put a mirror right there in the middle where the framed quote is.
Wouldn’t that be great too??
One of my favorite necklaces.
I won it on an Instagram Giveaway. :)
I’ve since bought quite a few things from this great little company, for myself and gifts!
Like this bracelet….
“I can do hard things” …. yes, yes, I can! Love it so much and a good reminder for me.
The company is called Charmed Collections. Go by and check them out. :)
I feel absolutely giddy over my newly, organized storage solution. (and purging a bit of my jewelry helped too! ;) )
It really is nice to have it so organized and at hand. I can actually see what I have to wear now.
Be sure to PIN this for later so you can make a DIY jewelry organizer too! AND don’t forget, you can put a mirror or a quote in the middle. OR you can leave it empty and just add more hooks for more jewelry. ;)
