Repurposed Cabinet Door Turned Jewelry Organizer Display
A while ago, I saw a pin on Pinterest for this amazing trash to treasure idea for a jewelry organizer made by Liz Marie on her blog Liz Marie Blog. She did such an amazing job that I pinned it right away and tucked it away in my mind to do for a later date. I think it’s been months now and I finally got around to attempting it. SOOOO, here is my version of a Repurposed Cabinet Turned Jewelry Organizer. Oh! And a HUGE thank you to Liz Marie for the inspiration.
Note: I decided to update this post! This project was done back in January of 2014, years ago. I still have this and use it everyday. It sits on my dresser inside my closet and I still love it. It is very sturdy and I imagine keeping it for a long time!

How to Make It
I decided to go to Habitat for Humanity Restore, one of my favorite places to buy the cabinet door. They have the best selection there at low prices.
A nice wide door or shelf is perfect for repurposing. Knobs and pulls can be found at secondhand stores as well, but didn’t find what I wanted so I ventured to Home Depot to get these.
I had some left over spray paint from the thrift store shelf makeover I had done a while back. The color was perfect for me so I used what I had left for this jewelry organizer. Two light coats worked well and I allowed it to dry completely in between each coat.
Once it was dry I measured and marked with a pencil where I wanted each knob and pull. I used a drill to drill a hole at each marker, then added my pulls as well! Lastly, since the screws were sticking out of the back, I cut and stapled brown packing paper to the back for a finished look.
I loved the way it turned out. It looks great in my walk in closet.
