Every girl needs a storage system for her jewelry – and these are the perfect, rustic piece. The great thing about using a mixture of decorative knobs is that you can put together ANY look you like. No need to be limited by what’s in stock (pre-made) at the craft store, you can easily put together one of these with a piece of scrap wood and your own choice of 4-6 knobs or drawer pulls.
Mine usually range in size from 4″ tall to 12-18″ long depending on how many knobs I’ve picked out to use. My favorite spacing between the knobs is usually 3″ on center from one knob to the next. (Give yourself a little more room if you’re using oversized knobs or odd shapes) There are a MILLION distressing tutorials out there on the web- why write another one? 🙂 The other option you have is to paint chevron on the back (see below), or use barnwood. That’s the other beautiful thing about doing it yourself … 🙂 🙂
If you’re like most people and you want to pick your knobs (but don’t want to mess with drilling holes and distressing wood) you can always hire us to build you one. 🙂
Confession: I love making these. They are quick and easy and gorgeous no matter what combination you end up with. 🙂
