Up-cycled Printer Drawer Jewelry Holder

I've had this project done for a while now, but I just didn't know how to display it. The finished product had been leaning up against my closet door for about a month. So the other night Mike and I were brushing our teeth when he asked me if I noticed anything different in my closet. I took a peek and sure enough he had mounted it to the back wall in my closet and it looked great! BAH he is awesome. My fabulous handy man! He is also really awesome at yard work, I'll have to post some pictures of his awesome landscaping ASAP!

Anyways, Mike's Dad gave me this printer drawer to sell at Furniture Consignment Center, but I had this brilliant idea (that I saw on Pinterest once).


First I cleaned it, very well. Then I taped off the metal siding and spray primed the entire drawer.


Then I painted it! This took a long time. I kept thinking I was done, but then I would find a bunch of sections I had missed. The second coat was easier :)

THEN I used a really small drill bit to make holes in the top of most of the little sections, and used pliers to screw in each eye pin and hook pin. This also took a long time.


But it was all totally worth it! Before I felt overwhelmed by the big pile of earrings in my jewelry box. The lid couldn't close any more! But now I'm ready for more earrings!
I am going to start collecting funky peace sign earrings, it's my new thing. 




So what do you think? I hope everyone is having a lovely May day :)
