DIY Necklace Holder

For as long as I can remember I have had no organization whatsoever when it came to my necklaces and it always stressed me out.  I have several projects on my to-do list, including a necklace holder, to accomplish before our little nugget arrives so I see a busy and crafty summer!  

I had been on the lookout for an already made necklace holder, but never found anything I liked.  One weekend when I was home visiting my parents my mom pulled out cabinet knobs that she had saved from my parents first home together.  Perfect!  Before I left Texarkana to head back home that weekend, I ran by Michael's and picked up two wooden plaques and came home with the knobs and plaques ready to become a necklace holder with sentimental value :)

About a year ago I discovered Martha Stewart Metallic Paint and Metallic Glaze from Home Depot and absolutely love it.  For this project, I used the Metallic Paint in Thundercloud and the Metallic Glaze in Mercury and Black Coffee.

Once I had the plaques painted, I used hot glue to attach the cabinet knobs.  I could have been picky and precise and do a lot of measuring, but I used the good ol' "eyeball" method and it turned out pretty close to perfect!  The picture is rather distorted on distance between knobs due to me taking the picture from an angle.  To attach the plaques to the wall, I used saw tooth picture hangers nailed to the back.  Overall it was a pretty easy project that turned out super cute and is a great organization tool in my closet!  It's so easy to see all my necklaces now.  Amazing!
