A while ago, I saw a pin on Pinterest for this amazing trash to treasure idea for a jewelry organizer made by Liz Marie on her blog Liz Marie Blog. She did such an amazing job that I pinned it right away and tucked it away in my mind to do for a later date. I think it’s been months now and I finally got around to attempting it.  SOOOO, here is my version of a Repurposed Cabinet Turned Jewelry Organizer. Oh! And a HUGE thank you to Liz Marie for the inspiration.

Materials:

  • Cabinet Door
  • Spray paint
  • Drill
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Knobs and pulls

I decided to go to Habitat for Humanity Restore, one of my favorite places to buy the cabinet door. They have the best selection there at low prices.

I decided on this one because it was nice and wide and perfect for repurposing.

I looked for knobs and pulls as well, but didn’t find what I wanted so I ventured to Home Depot to get these.

I had some left over spray paint from the thrift store shelf makeover I had done a while back. I love the color so I used what I had left for this jewelry organizer. I painted two coats allowing it to dry completely in between each coat.

Once it was dry I measured and marked with a pencil where I wanted each knob and pull. I used a drill to drill a hole at each marker.

I used the drill to add my pulls as well! I loved the way it turned out.
