Wall-Mounted Jewelry Organizer

~another handmade gift idea~
What to do with those pretty necklaces to keep within easy reach and prevent tangling?
This wooden shelf works for me.
The two-tier shelf provides lots of hooks to chorale all your necklaces and bracelets in one place.
Hang it in your closet or in dressing area.
 We had a few pieces of leftover wood trim but you can purchase wood at your local store.  We cut the pieces to 40-inch lengths and nailed them together. Decide what length works best for you, your space and number of jewelry pieces you have.
This simple design provides two levels to hang many necklaces in a small space and still keep them separated. 
When the wood pieces are attached, sand smooth and apply a coat of primer. Paint in desired color and it is ready to add hooks.

I found large white upholstery tacks (from Lowe's) and nailed them about an inch apart across most of the shelf and a little further apart at the opposite end for wider bracelets.
My board used exactly 100 tacks (4 boxes of 25).

The top ledge of the shelf gives additional space for small perfume bottles, rings, earrings or decorative accents.

I intended to hang my shelf on a wall in my walk-in closet but thought it
pretty enough to display in my dressing area with my necklaces right at my fingertips.

Were you reading my mind, my friend? I was just looking at ideas for organizing and storing jewelry. I'm so tired of tangled necklaces and things hidden away where I forget to look for them. This is a cute idea. I may have to 'borrow' the idea for my tiny, little closet. You are always an inspiration to me.
