Jewelry Storage

This year has been so busy, especially in the mornings. Even though I live 2 seconds from my work, I still find myself rushing out the door with any accessories, even though I have so many beautiful ones.
I realized one reason is because "out of sight, out of mind", they're stored in a jewelry box. So I decided that the 2 spoon racks and frame from Goodwill could be turned into my jewelry storage so I can actually see the pieces as I'm grabbing clothes in my closet.

First, I spray painted the spoon racks and the frame black.

I covered the backing of the frame in fabric using a spray adhesive that dries clear and leaves no residue.

Here's the fabric lined backing inside the frame. Now to take apart my jewelry box. I picked 3 drawers from it and spray painted them black too.

As seen here....

I also spray painted some nails using this cardboard box.

Then I used some string, measuring tape and tape to make a grid on the frame that could be removed.

Then using Super Glue, a few nails and a staple gun I attached my drawers to the frame backing.

I added the nails, using my grid for my bracelets to hang on.

The drawers are used for rings, earrings and loose pendants.

I removed the string and hung it in my closet.

I used the spoon holder for my necklaces.Luckily I was able to find 2 spoon holders since I have so many necklaces.

I hung the necklace holders above the frame.

This is the perfect set-up to remind to wear that jewelry.

And so far, the drawers are still defying gravity. :)

Cute! I never wear jewelry either, besides what I never take off, because it's such a hassle to find it! I hope your drawers stay up!

Excellent idea! I can totally relate to the "out of sight out of mind", I have lots of beautiful jewelry too that I should definitely be wearing more often. Thanks for linking up at Sweet Treats & Swanky Stuff!
