Wooden clothes hangers + Repurposed = Jewelry Organization!

If you follow my blog on Facebook, you might have noticed some chatter about some more Junkin Treasures I found this weekend!  Two lovely old suitcases and a small pile of wooden clothes hangers.  I loved how some of them had German business advertisements stamped/written on them!

What to do? What to do?  Honestly – this is what I was thinking about.

When Miss Ree blogged about her “Jewlery Holder” back in December, I just HAD to have one!  But unfortunately, my European bathroom walls are tile – floor to ceiling tile.  And as a renter, I best better not be making permanent holes for no fancy schmancy jewelry holder.  *dreamy sigh*

So back to my hangers… I pre-drilled some holes with our drill and placed hooks one inch apart….

Then I untangled a spider’s nest carefully hung some of my necklaces…

and above them, some purty bracelets to keep them company…

When I ran out of hooks, I found some small eyelet screws to create two more for my earrings. 

(I heart 3M strip plastic hooks!)

Don’t they look purty?  And so inviting!

I am hoping this will encourage me to wear them more often!

    I have an almost obsessive amount of necklaces and a tiny room, so i just stick a colorful tack on the wall and place the necklace there! It makes the room look interesting and I have a space just perfect for it, plus the tacks are of course outrageously cheap. But I love your idea, if I had more earrings, this would be my go-to idea for organization!

    Thank you for posting this,
    Annie

    I love the hanger idea. I made a simple hanger out of piece of wood. I like yours much better. If I see any wood hanger I might have to buy more jewelry. hee hee my hubby might not like that. well unless it inhances my lack of beauty. hee. hee.
