DIY: Necklace Holder

I'm sure we all know someone or met some lil' lady who has one.  Bright, shiny collections tacked to the wall displaying spoons from here and there.  That's right, I'm talking a spoon rack.

I grabbed this guy at a garage sale a few years ago for a whole dollar.  I had big intentions to turn it into something pretty and useful, but it wasn't until this summer I finally got around to it.  It was worth the wait.  It turns out a spoon rack doubles as the perfect necklace holder!

I have to admit, I had to dig this out of it's original spot to get some good photos.  Here it is in the dark dungeon of my closet in full working action:

Really necklaces are much prettier than spoons anyway. I've seen this exact one at a few thrift stores, apparently spoon collecting has gone out of style ; ) I'm glad I could give one a new home.

  3. OMG, you're a GENIUS!!! I have an old spoon rack (actually, I might have more than one!!) that I have no use for... till now!! I'm going to dig it out from the pile that it's in (assuming I can find the right pile) and turn it into a necklace holder.

    Hope you don't mind me copying you, but this is SERIOUSLY brilliant!!

  13. This is just what I need! Oh how I long for a decent accessory storage system. My life is just so chaotic without it. You think there's a closet organizer person out there somewhere??
