If you've got an extensive jewelry collection, you can never have too many jewelry storage options.
I did a jewelry display made out of a canvas, which you might have already seen here — Super Easy DIY Jewelry Holder that Doubles as Decor, but if you need more room to hang your jewelry or you just prefer to make a statement, this DIY Jewelry Wall is for you.
The District Shops - Cherry Creek
This jewelry wall was actually made for the Never Skip Brunch Shop which JUST OPENED in The District Shops right in Denver's Cherry Creek Shopping District. The District Shops are a multi-vendor space with over 300 Local Makers & Vendors.
There are seriously so many talented people with a space there, so I wanted to go above and beyond when opening a shop of my own to make sure my shop was up to par. I decided to create some visual elements to create interest and display my fresh & fun finishing touches from the Never Skip Brunch Line in a way that fits my brand's vibe.
After I made it for the shop, I instantly wanted one in my house to turn my jewelry into a home decor statement piece.
With a small space downstairs, I needed a way to make use of vertical space with a display that had some height. We thought about building a big wall for jewelry, but quickly decided we needed something that we could build quicker (we're talking less than an hour) and that would look polished & chic.
So, I came up this jewelry wall which is actually an Ikea hack — I didn't plan it that way, but ended up using all Ikea finds to make it. After I made it for the shop, I instantly wanted one in my house to turn my jewelry into a home decor statement piece.
Let's get started with the how-to, but don't forget to pin this post for later.
Spray Paint & Attach the front legs
The legs of this wall are actually Ekby Lerberg Brackets. Spray paint all four of them gold (or with your color of choice) and let them dry.
These brackets can actually be used two ways - by attaching the long edge or short edge. I attached the long edge to the front to keep the legs more out of the way, and the short way on the back to make it a little more stable.
To attach, you'll use 2X screws per leg and place a washer between the screw and the hole in the bracket — since these are shelf brackets made to slide on wall screws and then down into place, the washers are essential to making sure your screws don't pop out of the brackets.
You can use additional screws and put 2X per hole (for a total of 4 per bracket) if you feel like you need the bracket legs to be more secure. Make sure to line the bottom of the bracket up flush with the wall so that the legs and edge of the white board will stay level on the floor.
Hammer in your nails
I left an 8" gap at the top of the board before starting my nails so that I could add the cute little hello sign I found at Target, but you can start your nails right at the top (about 1" down from the top) if you don't have a sign or decor to add.
I spaced the nails 1" apart, with the first nail starting 1.5" in. You can use painters or masking tape to make sure your line is straight, or just measure and mark out each nail with your tape measure and a pencil.
Each of my rows are about 20-25" apart and I had three rows total. You can use your existing jewelry to measure out and see how you want your rows spaced, leaving some rows closer together for smaller necklaces and some further apart for pendants.
Attach the back legs
The back legs work just like the front ones, except you'll be attaching the short side to the wall with the long side on the floor.
Line your bracket legs up with the edge of the wall and attach with screws and washers just like before.
Add necklaces & decor
I added the Hello sign I found at Target for $6 — I can't find it anywhere online, but it was in the home decor area on a endcap if you want to check your local store.
You could also get crafty and use a sticker or hand-draw or paint on your own sign at the top.
My necklaces are obviously packaged for sale, but your necklaces, bracelets or earrings can hang one per nail for display.
