{DIY} Magnetic Memo Board Jewelry Organizer & Giveaway

Home improvement projects tend to have a domino effect in our house. Once we painted the master bedroom, I realized I couldn't just put all of my jewelry and make up items back the way they were in my vanity area.  It had become a big mess (sorry, no before photo).  I searched Pinterest for jewelry organizing ideas and saw a lot of cork board ideas for displaying/organizing jewelry.
I didn't have a cork board that would fit on the narrow vanity nook wall but I did have a Creative Memories Everyday Display Board (currently being used in the powder room to display photos).  I took it up to my room to see if it would work. The board has super strong magnets, a cloth background and a ribbon with mini clothespins for hanging things along the ribbon.   I did a quick mock up and liked the way it looked.
The black frame looked great but was being used elsewhere and I had an extra white board in my stash (use what you have!) so I set that one up with some blue scrapbook paper as a background. I also used some black magnetic hooks that came with an Ikea magnetic chalkboard.  The ribbon holds my hanging earrings.
 I love how I can see all of my jewelry in one place now.  I tend to be lazy with my jewelry and don't change it very often but now I'm starting to change it up a bit more.
  The board comes with hardware for hanging if I decide I want to do that down the road but for now, it's propped up agains the wall and working well.  I can change out the paper if I want a different look and if I find a better jewelry solution, I can always repurpose the board. We currently have four in the house (the powder room, each girl's room and now my bedroom too).
I'm using an extra Ikea spice rack (from this project) to hold my watches and bracelets.  You can see I'm also using one of the spice racks to hold my hair products (in the above photo when I was trying out the black frame). My Jonathan Adler zebra rug dish holds additional rings and stud earrings.  My newest addition is this sweet deer dish that Miss High School made me for Christmas. It's perfect for bracelets that don't have a clasp.  It's her spin on the Glam Dinosaur Ring Dish that I made for her and I adore it!

If you want to make of these for yourself you'd probably be out of luck if you don't already own one of these Everyday Display Boards because they are no longer in production sooooooo being the nice blogger buddy that I am....drumroll please....
**I'm giving away my last Creative Memories Everyday Display Board to one lucky reader!!**
The color is chocolate brown and it's still in the box.
You don't have to use it for jewelry either. It makes a great frame for photos, mementos and scrapbook pages. I change up my powder room frame frequently and seasonally.  You can find lots of inspiration on Pinterest.

You have come up with a very clever idea. I like it. I have a jewelry box so I would use it for a picture frame for something my grand children make me.

I love this idea! I have tons of jewelry I don't wear because I can't flipping see it! It's stuffed in boxes in like three different places in my house. Not only is this a fully functional way to display your jewelry but it's also quite lovely! Great job, Heather!

I have NO organization for my jewelry so I think I would use you as an inspiration and do something similar. It looks fantastic! Thanks for the great opportunity! jlanenh@comcast.net

I would love to display the necklaces my mom males by hand from colorful glittery yarn. She has sent me some in different colors and they would look really nice against the background. Thanks for this chance they are really original!

I have so many ideas, but I think this would be perfect for my necklaces!

There can be nothing better than finding all your things at a single place. This idea of using the magnetic organizer is great. Keep sharing more ideas.
