Jewelry Organizer - The Reveal

My jewelry finally has a new, organized home. Everything is easier to see and more accessible.

I have taken different pictures of the entire 5 ft by 2 ft piece, going from left to right, top to bottom. I had it propped up against a wall outside my closet in order to take these pictures. You might see jewelry has moved in some pictures. That is because I played around with the layout.

I need to reinforce the chain that I had hot-glued to the frame - it seems to have come undone a litte (at the top).

Even the jewelry my kids have made for me over the years will have a prominent place (like the multicolored beaded necklace on the right).

It stands up fine against the wall and as the hardware cloth (mesh) was of medium gauge it holds up well. I might consider reinforcing it at the back, but that is down the road. Perhaps with some metal.

It could also be mounted on a wall if I wanted.

Some close-ups of the hardware and jewelry.

I like the look of the gold hardware against the silver mesh.

My larger, chunky rings.

The two pieces on the right are my 'regular" bracelets - they go with a lot of different outfits and are lightweight and therefore perfect for daily wear. I have them more accessible now.

It will now have jazz up my walk-in closet.

How I did it:

It all started with this hardware cloth,

and a couple of garden stakes.

  which were sprayed with this textured shimmer.

The mesh was tied to stakes with twine

using a blanket stitch.

This was, once again, spray painted with the textured shimmer all over and then with a clear top coat.

Then hardware (drapery hooks, shower curtain rings) from True Value

was spray-painted with metallic gold paint.

Cobalt blue flannel fabric (remnants I had at home) was glued around the edge of the frame and then I hot-glued a couple of these inexpensive chains sold by the foot (available at any hardware store) also from True Value

to it.

Finally the hardware was added to the grid

to hold jewelry

Time for the jewelry to go on.

I am thrilled with this piece. One of the best things about this entire process is that I have found pieces of jewelry I forgot I had.

I am linking up to some of these.
