How To Make A Fabulous Jewelry Organizer

Hope you all had a wonderful Father's Day celebration and a great weekend!
A big thank you to all who entered the Cutting Edge Stencil Giveaway! The lucky winner gets one stencil up to a $50 value. 

 Before we get to that, I wanted to share the whole project with you. 
I started off with our daughter's existing cork board and Mr. Fanatic cut a piece of plywood the same size.

Then, both were painted white.

Two pieces of burlap were cut a little larger than the plywood and cork board. Then the stencil was place on the burlap and taped down so it wouldn't move. The paint was rolled on using a foam roller. I used the All Over Trellis stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils.  The paint is Valspar Nautical, which was leftover from our daughter's bookcases.You can see them here.

The burlap was wider than the stencil, so to continue the pattern, I just slid the stencil over and matched up the pattern.

Here's the finished burlap.

Once the paint dried, the burlap was attached with a staple gun.

Upholstery tacks were added every couple of inches.

Drawer pulls and knobs were attached to the plywood with screws from the back.

Here's the finished bulletin board.

Earrings are kept organized on the drawer pulls ~ bracelets and necklaces are fit nicely on the knobs.

I'm loving how this project turned out and now am looking  for something else I can stencil using this wonderful pattern.

  3. This is fabulous! Love that stencil and especially the color paint you used!

  4. This is adorable! Love the Stencil, and the knobs, just so unique! Love it!

  5. So gorgeous and so many ideas all bundled together in this post. Also, you managed to combine multiple on-trend elements ... nail heads, burlap, turquoise, and an imperial trellis like pattern, and not have the end product look over-the-top. I love everything about this. I hope the name / source of the stencil is in a previous post, must go look! First time visitor and fellow linker from Metamorphosis Monday.

  8. What a great project. Something different. Thanks for sharing, Deb

  9. That is too cute for words! I love how you did the stencil on it. Perfect! The staple gun between the fingers did freak me out a bit though! Ha!

  10. I love the door knob draw pull concept. So much better than the usual chicken wire jewelry organizer Idea. You also arranged them really smartly on the board. I couldn't figure out your spacing till I saw it with the jewelry hanging :-)

  11. Really nice ! Love this post, please link it up with me on Wow Us Wednesday at Family Home and Life.

  12. Love this project! Especially LOVE how you stenciled the burlap! I have painted burlap for several projects and I love the way it turns out. Nice job!

  13. This is awesome! I love your color choice. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Hi, I love this idea. I am writing an article about DIY Teen bedroom crafts and wondered if you would be OK with me featuring this idea. You would get full credit of course. Please email me if you would like to be involved, Thanks so much, Kate.
