Hello, beautiful! I’m so happy to have you stop by, so I can share this beautiful rustic jewelry organizer with you! My inspiration to make this, came from knobs I found, while I was going through some junk in our house. I honestly can’t remember where they even came from…I’m thinking a family member gave them to me, but I didn’t know what to do with them. This time was different, and I instantly thought of putting them on some wood, to use for hanging my necklaces. So as usual, I went to my husband and asked for a few minutes of his time to help with this. I’m sure I could’ve figured it out on my own if I really tried, but it’s just so much faster to get him to help me!
- 1 x 4 piece of wood at desired length
- Tape Measure
- Foam Brush
- Picture Hangers
To start off with, you need a piece of wood cut to your desired size. Since it’s just one cut, you should be able to have an employee cut it to your desired size when you purchase the wood. Once you have your wood you need to mark out where you want your knobs to go.
In the picture below you will see two different sets of markings. The vertical lines were done to mark out the spacing in between each knob, which in my case was 2″ in from each end with 2.5″. The short dashes in the centre of each vertical line are marking where the knobs will go.
After you have completed your markings, you need to drill holes so that you can fit the screw for your knobs through. The size of your hole should ensure the screw for the knob fits tightly. If you aren’t sure what size drill bit to use, you can use a test piece of wood to make sure first!
Now you get to stain your piece of wood the colour of your choice! We did this one in a Dark Walnut stain by Minwax, but there are many different stain colours to choose from. Make sure you stain the entire top and sides of the piece according to manufacturer’s directions.
You’re probably thinking how am I going to attach this beautiful jewelry organizer to the wall?! Well, we decided to make it super easy and just used two picture hangers on the back. The weight of this wood and the jewelry I’m hanging is pretty minimal so this will be enough to support it! We attached one at each end of the wood as shown in the picture below.
Finally, you get to hang your jewelry organizer on the wall! Measure the space between your picture hangers so you know where to nail your holes on the wall. Hook your beautiful piece onto the wall, add jewelry, and enjoy your gorgeous new useful wall art!
