Simple and classy striped jewelry holder from a cabinet door! Take an old cupboard door (that you’ve now moved several times because you just knew it was going to be something beautiful one day) add some chalk paint and crystal knobs, and you have the start of a beautiful striped jewelry holder. I haven’t worn much jewelry for the past few years for two reasons:

  1. I have young kids to like to touch, pull, and chew on jewelry
  2. Its all jumbled in a huge snarled nest that frustrates me to no end.

See? Its really bad. I can’t see what’s there and if I do have a desire to sift through it I end up sighing and giving up since we’re probably on our way out the door somewhere.

So it was beyond time to make a solution that I can easily take with me on our many moves and still looks beautiful. Since the cupboard door was already finished, I knew chalk paint was a great option because its a no-prep acrylic paint and wax that dries in minutes which means I can make a project like this during a nap time. (Which I did).

Jewelry Holder Instructions:

  1. Wipe your cabinet door, and dry it. The great thing about chalk paint is that it is easy to use, very forgiving, and requires little or no surface preparation. Then apply tape around the inset panel and start laying out your pattern. I chose to do alternating stripes and used a small piece of tape to measure the gap.Simple and classy striped jewelry holder from a cabinet door!
  2. Paint the Cobblestone chalk paint over to every other blank space. Simple and classy striped jewelry holder from a cabinet door!
  3. Paint the remaining stripes with Patina chalk paint, and let dry (but remove the tape before it’s super dry so your paint doesn’t peel).Simple and classy striped jewelry holder from a cabinet door!
  4. Give the whole surface a thin coat of wax, and let dry completely. Then come back and buff the surface to a shine.Simple and classy striped jewelry holder from a cabinet door!
  5. Put a strip of tape where you want your knobs, and then mark the exact spots. I wanted a short row of knobs for bracelets then 5 alternating knobs for necklaces. Then drill! I used a drill bit just slightly larger than my screws. Then remove the tape.Simple and classy striped jewelry holder from a cabinet door!
  6. Screw your knobs on, and start untangling the mass of chains and beads. Yikes!Simple and classy striped jewelry holder from a cabinet door!

And now you can see what you own and its beautifully displayed. Its got character, its function, and I can now use the box for other treasures. 🙂

You did a beautiful job. The paint looks like it is easy to work with. The glass knobs highlight everything perfectly.
