When I updated my daughters’ shared bedroom a couple of months ago, I received the sweetest comments on how the room turned out. If you missed the room reveal, you can catch the post here. The jewelry pegboard DIY project I completed was one of my favorite elements. According to the feedback received, that organizer was also a favorite among my lovely readers.
On the blog today, I’m excited to share a tutorial on the jewelry pegboard organizer that is hanging all pretty in my kids’ “modern girl chic” themed bedroom.
Before I share the tutorial, I must WARN you…
The beginning photos of the steps are NOT PRETTY! 😀
1. Find Large Picture Frame
This project all started when I spotted this large vintage picture frame at my next door neighbor’s yard sale. The size of the frame measured 41 inches length by 28 inches height. When I told my neighbor that I loved the ornate details of the frame, she told me, “consider it yours now.”
Hooray for awesome neighbors! 🙂 Since she wouldn’t take money from me, I gave her a fresh loaf of bread that I purchased as a 2-pack. So…for the cost of a loaf of bread, I scored this beauty. Funny, right? 🙂
2. Repaint Frame
I used 1 can of white “semi-gloss” paint for the frame. You should do at least 2 coats. I did the spraying in a far corner of our backyard. Don’t we all have an “icky” part of our backyard for projects? 😉
3. Cut Pegboard to Size
Make sure you don’t cut pegboard too small. You can always trim the pegboard if it’s too big for your picture frame.
4. Paint Pegboard
I chose a blue colored paint from Sherwin Williams. I thought the color would contrast well with the white frame. By the way, this is a great project to utilize the “leftover” paint from one of your previous painting projects. That’s exactly what I did!
I recommend 2 coats of paint.
5. Allow Paint to Dry
6. Secure Pegboard onto the Frame.
Love the color contrast between the grey-ish blue color against the white-colored frame.
7. Use Hardware to Hang Jewelry
Most people use pegboard hooks but I decided to use these clear drawer pulls I had lying around.
Note: If you use drawer pulls, you’ll likely have to trim part of the hardware because the spacing will be too wide between the decorative knob and the backing.
8. Add Small Picture Frames to Jewelry Organizer
Adding these frames will give the pegboard more interest. Be sure to remove the backing so that you’re only using the frame. I purchased these pretty frames from Michaels.
9. Adorn Your Jewelry Pegboard Organizer!
Thanks to this organizer, my daughters can easily pick out what jewelry to go with their outfits. By the way, 90% of the time, they don’t wear jewelry. They are still a little young. 🙂
