Every couple of months my hubby and I will check out the clearance section at Walmart while we are there. We have found some pretty cool stuff for cheap by doing this. There were a couple of times that I found some cabinet door knobs. I decided to get them, not knowing what I wanted to do with them. I knew I could come up with something though!
These doorknobs have have been sitting in my crafting armoire for a few months now. I opened it up one day and decided it was time to put these to use in a project.
After looking around to see what I could come up with I came across my necklaces. They are all in a drawer tangled together. They are a pain to get out of the drawer because of this reason. I needed a better way to organize them. What better way then to hang them on doorknobs!!! Brilliant!!!!
I had a board all painted and stained that I had done for another project, but didn't end up using it.
This was the perfect thing for my necklace organizer that I was going to make with the doorknobs!
It was so simple to put together.
First, I put V Hangers on the back of the board to be able to hang it up.
Next, I measured the board and spaced out the doorknobs how I wanted them to be. Then I took another piece of wood and drilled 3 holes of how I wanted them spaced. This way they were perfectly even on my real board. I used that for a pattern when drilling the holes on my board. I forgot to get a picture of this step! Sorry!
Then I screwed the cabinet doorknobs on the board.
Lastly, I hung many of my necklaces on it to organize them!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new organizer!!! I have a few more necklaces so I might end up doubling up the knobs so I can hang more of them up! I haven't decided though. These are the ones I where the most so I now have easy access to them!!
