Remember the jewelry board I made two years ago? It was simple paper covered Homasote with cup hooks screwed in, and it did the trick of getting my accessories out of the drawer and into rotation. It did the trick so well, in fact, that I got in the habit of wearing jewelry, so I kept buying it, so I ended up needing more storage that would handle the bigger pieces. Enter my dad!

I showed him this tutorial and he did his usual magic of making it even better–beefier brass that he polished up, nicer wood for the blocks, partly set-in rods, and a more intelligent and stable mounting system.

I love that there’s enough space for everything and that it doesn’t feel like the whole thing will come crashing down if I remove one necklace. Thanks, Dad!
