Pinterest Inspiration: Jewelry Display from a Rake

Sorry about not posting this yesterday!  This last couple weeks of pregnancy are putting my brain through the ringer...SO much to do!

I feel like I'm cheating using this as my How-To Tuesday project this week...but I love the way this worked out!!

Not too long ago, on Pinterest,  I saw this cool old rake that had been used as a jewelry hanger!  Genius!

Ever since I made my Burlap Earring Display organizer (which I STILL's soooo perfect!), I've been trying to figure out how to get all of my necklaces...and other earrings...out of a huge tangled mess in my drawer.

This was perfect!

Then, I just happened to remember that we happened to have the head of a cool old rake, hanging up in our shed out back!  You all know how I love a good repurposed/upcycled this is vintage....Ooooooooh!


I just cleaned it off a little, tied a length of jute twine around the top part of the rake, so that I could hang my hoop and lobster-claw-style earrings to it, and then mounted the rake head onto the door of my closet!


It works perfectly!  And no more tangled necklaces!!!! 
(Plus it's out of reach of my youngest, who has a tendency to wander off with my nice jewelry!)

So, if you are lucky enough to have an old rake lying around, give this a try!!  So simple...and it looks fantastic!!!
