Thrifty and Convenient Jewelry Holder

This is a super easy project and I have loved, loved, loved having it in my bedroom! I actually was not a big jewelry wearer, but I think part of my dislike of wearing jewelry was the hassle of having to find the right thing!   But no more.  No more pilfering through my jewelry box and untangling necklaces or just forgoing jewelry all together because it's too time-consuming to search for the right color or right style!  

Found one large piece of wood at the Habitat Restore for $3.  I cut it into three equally sized sections and sprayed the sides with silver paint (thinking I would have them visible). 

I found some scrapbook paper that corresponds with the curtains in my room and mod-podged them onto the boards.

I liked the edges covered with paper better.

Next I lined up the middle of each 16x16 paper as best as I could.

See, it's easy to do with little helpers!

The three pieces ready for drilling.
The metal in my bedroom is oil-rubbed bronze, but finding knobs at a good price in that color (since it's popular right now) is very difficult.  So, I spent a little over $3 for the oil-rubbed bronze spray paint and made my knobs matching.  I also found these knobs at the Habitat Restore, 20 for a little more than $5.

Finding the right spot for each knob.
Drilled the knobs into place and called it finished.
