DIY time.

Estate sale frame:

Peg board from hardware store cut to size:

Can you guess where this is going yet?

Coat of white spray paint on frame:

Assortment of peg board hooks.

I didn’t like the chrome finish on these hooks and wanted to spray paint them a metallic bronze. I poked them in to the top of a shoe box lid for easy access when spraying.

I attached the peg board to the back of my frame then sprayed everything white.
Next, the hooks were inserted.

A new home for my jewelry.

Found these aged, antique looking hooks at Urban Outfitters.


  1. Lovely! Great idea and I absolutely love the addition of the hooks from Urban Outfitters – love it.

  22. i was just saying to myself… “i wish i could find a cute jewelry holder idea.”

    found it!

    so glad i found your cute blog too!

  23. I am 100% copying this idea. I’ve been messing with jewelry holder ideas and yours takes the cake.

    Nicely played.

  24. i am jelly..i cant find one of these for anything…

  25. Fabulous idea! In my spare 5 minutes of time every now and again, I create my own necklaces and have run out of space to store them. This is such an amazing idea to have them on display.

  26. I don’t know where you get your creativity, but could you sell me some? I love this idea.

  27. You amaze me with your creativity! I would have never thought to do that! I wish you lived closer, haha.

  28. Great idea! I am redoing a room to be my dressing room and this would be very cute in there. Going to have to try to find a bargain frame.

  29. What a wonderful idea! I love it to pieces.

  30. I recently wrote a post about diy jewelry display ideas. This one is great. Wish I would’ve seen it earlier!

  31. So crazy…must be my day! I was literally envisioning this exact (kind of;) ) project early this morning for my entryway, I need to make a coat/backpack/key rack that I want to look somewhat nice since I don’t have a real ‘mudroom’, and I just happened to find your site on Better After and you show exactly how to do it!! Heading to the thrift store after kids go to school looking for a large frame. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  32. Very nice. What a great idea.

  33. Love it! I’ve been dying to get my hands on an antique frame and make a jewelry display, or a chalkboard..still undecided. But your little creation makes me want to make a jewelry board!

  34. I love this! The hooks from Urban Outfitters totally make it.

  35. Nice! The best I’ve seen of these things. You’re the greatest.

  36. Very, very cute! I know a certain daughter who would LOVE that!

  37. The hooks were the perfect touch~ it looks great!

  38. I’m totally stealing this idea!

  39. So I must be the only gal left on the planet who hasn’t read your blog before……..just found you from the wonderful makeover post on Better After. I think I’ve found my “design twin” love your style and will definitely add you to my list of “must reads”.

    PS: Great mirror..I DIY’ed one just like it for my dining room (although I kept mine as a mirror it may end up like yours someday when I want a change).

  40. This project is fantastic. I especially love the hardware find from Urban Outfitters. Love your blog!!

  41. Dang Girl, that is so cute. I didn’t expect it to turn out so great! I’m sure your pleased.

  42. I’m in love! How do you come up with these things?

  43. I love it! Wow, what a great idea!! I just hung all of my jewellery on one of those cheap over the door hangers. This is beautiful. I must try it!

  44. I saw this hiding in your closet when I toured your home. Such a creative idea! I wish I had a jewelery collection like that!

  45. Just want to let you know this is a wonderful frame. FYI: You can get these exact frames with the little ribbon thingy from…our favorite place…Hobby Lobby! They have them in all sizes. Yessiirrr…

    In my city the biggest frame is $50. I can seriously see redoing a wall gallery with these frames.

  46. Beautiful frame and I loved how you transformed it! I might have to do something like this for necklaces. I made one for earrings but this is a notch better!! Thanks for sharing!!

  47. Just brilliant. I was browsing Houzz to collect ideas for our new apartment and then realised quite a few photos are actually from you. Well done, you do have a great talent! Keep it coming!
