after we moved, i ended up with this extra silverware tray and a random drawer that i quickly repurposed into the organizational pieces you see here. it was simple! for the tray, i removed the dividers using a hammer, then i spray painted both of the pieces white. second, i cut some pretty paper to fit inside each sectiona exactly and mounted them with spray adhesive. third, just add some picture hanging wire to the back of it and you’re ready to hang it!

what do you think? i also considered using it as a jewelry organizer, by adding little hooks to hang necklaces on.

  • what a great idea! I definitely need to do this.

  • What a clever idea! I love it!

  • Wonderful I idea, I’ve been trying to come up with a good way to display my vintage brooch collection, but still be able to access them to be able to where them. I think I’ll try modifying this idea.

  • Bonnie this is really cute! I like it alot. What is the fabric that you used in the silverware drawer? I really like that pattern.

  • or paper I guess…not fabric :)

  • so cute!! i love it!

  • I’ve never used spray glue. Could you do this with fabric instead of paper??? I’m really new to DYI projects.

    • dawn, yes! you could absolutely use fabric. you might also find mod podge helpful!

  • This is so clever and would be perfect for all the little bits and bobs in my daughter’s room. Thanks for the idea!

  • Love this idea, it’s so cute!! I’m definitely running to the thrift store to see if I can find some silverware trays to re-purpose!

  • beautiful and smart. Thanks so much <3

  • Why does the after look nothing like the before? Is the “from this” photo just a stock one? Because honestly I don’t find it a useful illustration of how to do this project.
