Check Me Out: My Cheap, Homemade Jewelry Box from Cutlery Trays

I am not a crafty person.

I’m so much NOT a crafty person that I still make my mother fix buttons that have popped off my clothing (thanks Mom).

Still, I’d been struggling to find a solution for my expanding collection of accessories. And most large jewelry boxes on sale are gaudy and never solve the problem of the “long necklace,” of which I have many.

Enter Pinterest and this post I discovered featuring a jewelry box made from cutlery trays. It solved my problem, looked good, and seemed easy enough for me to do. Plus, it cost less than $50.

I have more long necklaces than she does, and lots of wall space to fill, so I decided to flip the concept horizontally.

Materials:

1. Bamboo cutlery trays from Bed Bath & Beyond, which I painted with high-gloss, white enamel paint. Took a few coats to cover all the brown.

2. White cup cooks and hanging strips. I used a drill to make pilot holes for the cup hooks, then screwed them in the rest of the way. I used the hooks for necklaces and hanging strips for earrings.

Then I hammered it into the wall. And that’s it.

No really!
