I’m really excited about the necklace organizer project. I used reclaimed wood and part of a shelf from Home Interiors to make this unique piece. And I don't have just one necklace organizer project.....I have two just for you. Enjoy!
It’s even fun with out the necklaces…..very cool wall décor. I’m sorry. I know I’m patting myself on the back….truth is….I about knocked myself over One reason I’m so happy with this project is because of it’s simplicity.
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.
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.
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.
And that's it for project number 2.
If you liked these projects you will love this one too.....Thrifty Clock Makeover.
