I have been whipping up a bunch of new jewelry for the summer and I realized I am running out of solutions for storage for it. To tell you the truth I end up throwing it in a drawer in the kitchen when I take it off.
Not good it gets damaged, tangled, and will eventually start to tarnish if it’s not real precious metals. I went on a Pinterest hunt for just the right wall jewelry organizer.
Well days later after going over a nearly a million posts with ways to organize your jewelry. I found a couple of wall jewelry organizer that I fell in love with, see them here and here.
I decided to marry the two by making them into one fabulous piece of wall art! I say wall art because it could be used as a hand towel rack in a bathroom or possibly a handbag holder in your closet, whatever you could think to do with it.
Let me tell you I am so in love with this organizer! I can finally see all my jewelry at once, to put together outfits. Adding the floor flanges gives it that hip industrial feel. I painted them gold so they have a bit of glam to them!
Let me show you how to make one!
How to make a Wall Jewelry Organizer
- Wood Plank: Mine was 7 x 1 x 19
- Acrylic paint: White, gold, copper
- Blue painter’s tape
- 2 Plumbing Floor Flanges 2.7 x 1/2 nipple (Lowe’s)
- 2 Galvanized T’s: Size 1/2 inch
- 2 Galvanized Steel Pipe Nipples: Size 1/2 inch x Close
- 4 Screw Eye Hooks, size 1 1/8 in, gold if possible, (Lowe’s)
- 8 Wood Screws that fit the Flanges
- 2 Wood Dowels: Size 5/8 x 36 in. (Lowe’s)
- 1 Wood Dowel, in the smallest size or size that will fit through the eye of the hooks (Lowe’s)
- Metallic Gold spray paint
- Hack saw
- Z-clip Wall Hanger
The piece of wood I used was a scrap piece I had from another project. You can get pieces of cut wood at your local hardware store. Adjust the size of the wood and add more flanges if you like.
Lightly sand all the edges of your board. Using a ruler, measure out your pattern and lightly draw it on the board with a pencil. Place your painters tape for your shapes.
Paint the shapes with acrylic paint.
TIP: I painted the stripe where the gold strip is white first so the gold would show up brighter on the wood.
Let the paint dry and remove the tape. Gently wipe away the pencil marks with a wet rag.
Cut down the dowels to different sizes with a hacksaw. My dimensions starting from the top are: #1 is 19 1/2inches, #2 is 21 1/2 inches, #3 is 22 inches and #4 is 24 inches.
Spray paint both of the flanges, galvanized T’s, all four eye hooks (if needed), and all three dowels with the metallic gold paint. Let it dry.
Place a floor flange in the bottom center of your board and secure with screws. Add the next flange above the bottom one and secure with wood screws.
Screw in the nipples on the flanges, then screw on the galvanized T’s and tighten. Touch up screws with the acrylic copper paint, (it matches the metallic gold spray paint I chose perfectly).
When I added the larger dowels into the galvanized T’s, the dowels would not fit snug, they would turn and were a bit loose in the T’s. I hammered a small piece of the small wooden dowel to break it up and then I inserted it into the T’s like a wedge to tighten the dowel’s so they will not turn. Worked perfectly!
Add your Z-clip picture hanger to the back of the wood. Mount it to the wall, then add the eye hooks and insert the small dowels. Hang your jewelry and that’s it!
It came out so cool I love it! I am so pleased with how this project turned out! It looks fabulous in my closet.
NOTE: I used the Z-clip at the advice of one of the other bloggers. My set holds up to 75lbs. The flanges and T’s are pretty heavy and you need to secure the jewelry holder snug to the wall for the added weight.
I used your link above to buy the flanges from amazon, in part because lowe’s would have to ship them in and it would take longer. I was saddened by the price, but more disappointed when they arrived and I realized the information was wrong. You have 1.5″ flanges linked (which are HUGE) – I think you wanted .5″ flanges. That must have been why they were so expensive. Not sure what to do with these now.
Sorry to hear about your issues with the floor flanges. Mine are 2.7 x 2.7 x 2.7 inch around as the one on Amazon states it is. I did not see the 1.5 nip size when I linked it up. Last year when I posted this post there were very few flanges available on Amazon, I guess I thought this was the correct one. I am really sorry about you having to return these items. I do know all you have to do is send the item back is to print out a return slip and put it back in the mail. Amazon will refund you immediately as the item is scanned by the postal service. I am removing my links for these items from this post. Ordering them online is obviously not a good idea, getting them from a hardware store is a better way to go to make sure you have the right fit in this case. This is why I added that they are found at Lowe’s to the supply list.
Oh that’s alright, it’s an honest mistake. I did find the links helpful to get an idea for pricing and to see a visual of what I would look for in the store. I should have realized when 1.5″ didn’t match the half inch for the other pieces, but I’m new to hardware and DIY. I only posted so that someone else wouldn’t make the same mistake I did. Thank you for sharing this- love the look!
