Come see how I made a beautiful DIY jewelry organizer from a $5 thrift store vintage spoon rack!

DIY Jewelry Organizer from a $5 Thrifted Spoon Rack

When I was cleaning & organizing our master bedroom the other day, I realized I was in desperate need of a new way to store my jewelry. It was getting out of hand and I was losing things left and right! I thought it would be fun to upcycle something into a jewelry organizer, and when I found this vintage spoon rack at Value Village I knew it was the perfect piece to start with!

By removing one of the shelves (brackets? spoon grippers? I have no idea what they’re called!), giving the spoon rack a coat of chalk paint, distressing it and adding a rustic rope hanger, I was able to transform this $5 thrift find into a beautiful and functional piece for my jewelry.

I also drilled some small holes on the top shelf with my drill so that I could hang a row of earrings:

The second shelf serves as a spot for my mid-length necklaces, and my long necklaces hang off the bottom shelf.

I adore how this piece turned out, and don’t you think all its pretty carved details were MEANT for chalk style paint and distressing?! I simply love the French Country, rustic glam look.

And now that my daughters have seen my DIY organizer hanging in their room, they all want one too. So I’m on the lookout for more vintage spoon racks!
