Well y’all, today’s post is a real labor of love & I’m THRILLED to share it with you!!
Whenever I take a photo in my room, the most frequently asked questions I get are how I made my accessory wall- and today I’m spilling all the details! The good news for y’all is that this is the easiest DIY ever – even a non-DIY’er like me could do it 🙂
In my day job, as a jewelry buyer, there are some serious perks- one of which are the insane sample sales! (We’re talking stuff-a-bag-for-$20-type-sales) Which means my jewelry collection has grown large over the past 5 years! In order to keep my collection organized, I had to come up with my own system, which I’m sharing with y’all today…
1. Start with a pegboard (just like this one). I pre-measured my wall and figured out the dimensions that I would need, and then went to Home Depot and they cut my board right down to size! When in doubt… let the trained professionals handle the heavy tools! 😉
2. I grabbed acrylic paint from Michaels in colors that matched my room, and then I painted to my heart’s content! Feel free to create whatever design you want- just make sure to put blankets or towels under your board, that paint will leak through the holes (lesson learned the hard way!).
3. Next comes install. This hook kit has all the parts and pieces you need to screw your board into the wall. I wish I could give you some tips on this part… but my dad actually did it for me (ha!). But it took all of about 5 minutes so I’m assuming it’s pretty easy! 🙂
4. Now it’s time to organize! I gathered a variety of these hooks and these baskets to organize my various jewelry on; they literally hook right into the pegboard so you can install them however you want. My larger statement necklaces actually have two hooks underneath, and the smaller, delicate pendants are fine on one. I use the basket for misc odds and ends (like statement earrings and open cuffs).
If you decide to tackle this DIY please make sure to share it with me! I’d love to see what you come up with!
