When getting some wood at Home Depot the other day, I saw these metal sheets that are used in cabinets and screen doors. The brass is super pretty and I really liked the cut outs in the sheets. The cut outs are the perfect size for clasps and hooks to slip through if used to display necklaces and earrings. I already have a jewelry box (HERE) that I repurposed out of an old medicine cabinet that holds bangles and chunky pieces, but a few of my long dangly necklaces and earrings still needed a place where they could easily be accessed when accessorizing. I decided to purchase a brass sheet and see what I could come up with!
My first thought was to frame the brass sheet with a wood and then paint it teal or red. Because I wanted to have my jewelry in the bedroom, and wall space and dresser tops are pretty full and designed how I like it, I opted to hand the long metal sheet behind the door. I used a belt made of fabric (with a poppy print) to hang it! All I did was weave it through the cuts outs and then fasten the belt. I could have also used ribbon, but I loved the look of the belt (and I rarely wear it, so it works!) Next was the fun part of going through my jewelry. Once the necklaces and earrings were in place, I added the newly made jewelry hanger to the hat hook on the back of our bedroom door.
And there you have it, a diy jewelry hanger with Home Depot roots!
