Repurpose – Jewelry Organizer

posted in: make it | 7

Jewelry Organizer - threadedtogether.comAre you tired of rummaging through a tangled up mess in a drawer or box to find just the right piece of jewelry to wear with an outfit?  This wooden thread spool holder served its intended purpose for several years in my sewing room/office – I’m sure that I got more than my money’s worth out of it. When I reorganized and moved my sewing thread to stacking see-thru plastic boxes, I couldn’t bring myself to throw the wooden organizer away and shoved it under the sewing table, only to be forgotten.  I redecorated my master bathroom a while ago and was actually on the lookout for a method to organize my costume jewelry when I saw something in a catalog, which reminded me of the wooden thread spool holder – and it now has a new purpose. It fits perfectly in the space and holds all of the pieces that I wear on a regular basis. A small decorative plate sitting on the counter holds post earrings. Everything is handy, especially for those early morning rushes to get out the door for work. The raw wood look works with my “beach-y” decorating theme, but it could be easily spray painted any color to match your décor.  If you don’t have a wooden thread spool holder stashed under your sewing table, you can pick one up at JoAnn’s for less than $10 (with a coupon!).

    I went out and bought one to do this (with a 40% off coupon of course!) as soon as I moved in to my new house last year. It was the best idea!

    Great Idea! I made one like this a few years ago and my teen loved it and still uses it. She is away at college now and I saw it hanging on her wall on our last visit.
    I shared your idea on my facebook page, Homemade Gift Ideas. I hope you don’t mind. LMK if you do and I can remove it. Thanks!
