Upcycled Flower Tray Gold Jewelry Organizer DIY

Jewelry organizer DIY  upcycled from flower baskets

I have been looking for a way for months to figure out how to keep my fun chunky necklaces from getting tangled together, and from misplacing one earring out of a set in my jewelry organization. I tried to keep each separated in little boxes, but they always ended up getting jumbled and mixed up anyway.

Then one day after planting some new flowers in the garden, I saw these flower trays and a light bulb went off – a gold one!

Yep, started with these plastic flower trays, and then used some fancy 18 kt. Gold Plated spray paint from Krylon.

I put my resident tweens to work, and they were more than happy to help.

There is just something satisfying about spray painting gold. = )

We painted one side and let dry, then the other side until the grated plastic tray was covered in gold.

Then I used 3M Command Strips that I cut in half so they were thinner and attached them to each corner of the gold tray.

And I found these gold S hooks at my local hardware store to use a necklace hooks. Perfect!

I hung them on my bathroom wall in a diamond pattern, and got to work hanging my jewelry on it.

My earrings hang right on the rungs of the grid pattern, while the S hooks work perfectly to attach necklaces.
