I have several long necklaces that always seem to get tangled together in my drawer. And I can never find the one I want without looking through all of them! I have been looking for just the right DIY piece to transform into an organizer to hang on my wall.
I found this piece at a local vintage store and although I didn’t like the color at all, I thought it would be perfect for what I needed. It measures 31 1/2-inches long by 4 1/2-inches wide. I think it may have been the front panel of a vanity or cabinet drawer at some point. The price tag listed it as a “project piece” and it was only $5 – I think it was meant for me. 😉
I painted the piece with Lace Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint. I had to paint 4 coats to get the coverage I wanted, making sure to let it dry between coats. Then I dry brushed it with leftover wall paint from my bedroom (Valspar Pewter) to soften the look and give it a more vintage-y (is that a word 😉 ) feel.
I found these great knobs at Amazon. They come in several colors and are a deal at only $12.99 for 12! They come in several different colors if turquoise is not for you. I love that they are flat on the bottom – I was hoping to be able to glue them onto the wood and these work great! I used clear E6000 glue (also available here on Amazon) to adhere my knobs evenly across the board.
And here it is!
It’s one of those projects that turned out exactly as I wanted! I just love it! Now I can find the necklace I want in seconds. 🙂
