Make A Necklace Organizer Using Recycled Items

I’m really excited about the necklace organizer project. I used reclaimed wood and a Home Interiors piece to make the organizer. And I don’t have just one necklace organizer project…..I have two just for you. Enjoy!

I started with the reclaimed door panel. The chippy distressed and layered paint is perfection.

I added a wire hanger to the back using two small screws and a piece of wire twisted around both screws.

Next I cut a round foam chair leg cushion (floor protector) into quarters…..

and adhered them to the back four corners of the board. These protect the wall and wise use of the foam cushions is a money saver.

If you’re over 50 or maybe even 40 you will know what this is. Home Interior! My aunt sold Home Interior décor for years. Everyone I knew had the very same things hanging in their homes.

We were happy with our décor and thought nothing of it. The gold iron piece above is a wall shelf minus the glass. The piece used to sit flush to the wall with a glass shelf on top.

I flipped the heavy iron pieceover for this project. I used a drill to start a pilot hole in the wood then a hand held screwdriver to put the screw in the wood. The iron piece had two screw holes on each end…..perfect.

See, simple but elegant too.

Of course, I’m a sucker for chippy paint. Well, what do you think of the flip? Did you see that coming? Now for necklace organizer number two which is a fun one for a kids room.

How cute is that with the flowers and the pretty yellow knobs.

I started the project with this piece of reclaimed architecture purchased at the Nashville Flea Market. I was going to use one of the curtain thingies in the middle of the wood for a hanger. When I got ready to put it on I decided the curtain thingy was too over powering for the wood. The scale was just off!

I freshened the wood with hemp oil. You can see the difference where I started using the hemp oil on the right side.

project supplies Petticoat Junktion

When I changed plans I looked around the shop and found the daisy I used in the Coral Dresser photo shoot. I hot glued it to the middle of the wood. I store the hot glue gun and glue sticks in this box. When I get ready to use the glue gun the box is great for keeping glue from getting all over everything and the glue gun also hangs on the corner of the box just perfectly.

Next I drilled a hole on each end for the knobs.

How To Make Pop Top Tab DIY Project Hangers Petticoat Junktion

This is the back side where I used the pop tabs as hangers and added cushions on the edges for wall protectors. The two additional nuts on the sides are where the screws for the knobs came through from the front. The JTS was kind enough to cut the screws down so they wouldn’t rub the wall. They were a tad long.

  1. I think I might have the candle sconce that matches the shelf.
    Probably in my junk box in the attic. Happy New Year!!!

  2. What great necklace holder you made, not surprised as you have the vision. I wasn’t one for home decorator stuff. Didn’t have in MT that I know about anyway. Know daughter in law had few pieces in KY. Didn’t get invited to party, stayed to ourselves out in country.
    What a great way to use those metal arms, so ingenious.
    Glad to hear you’re still going to school.
    Went out to shed to find a basket to cover with moss. Saw it on blog. She had made it for Easter but think I’ll angle it more to Spring. So glad to find you again.

  3. You’re awesome Donna. Thanks! They do work perfectly together. Have a great weekend 🙂

  4. Kathy, this is so adorable! It’s like those pieces were meant for each other! Featuring you on Party Junk this weekend! 🙂

  5. I sold Home Interior part time for a while. It was fun. I see it at garage sales a lot now. I still have some of it in my house. I just try to change it up a bit. Love your necklace hanger.

  6. How creative is that Kathy – love it! It looks fab against the chippy wood.

  7. i remember this shelf piece someone had or two had it in their house and then for years they sold at garage sales so they have been around the block a time or two lol, it looks better this way for sure xx

  8. Very clever. You have a great eye for repurposing “thangs.” This is the third time you’ve used something or photographed something at a junk shop that has made me think you need to start a regular post called “Name That Thang.”

  9. This is so cute! Love it! I remember Home Interior very well. Always someone in the neighborhood having a HI party, always enjoyed them.
